When much of Napa sees the summer fog, our Allomi Vineyard is often on the flip side, enjoying a bit of heat, which is just the thing for Cabernet Sauvignon. Pope Valley is less well known than some notable Napa locations but the combination of steady heat and well drained clay loam soils allows fruit to ripen every, gaining welcomed complexity and layers of flavors. Full bodied, with classic Cabernet red fruit flavors set off by aromas and flavors of currant and blackberry, our Allomi Cab is noted for moderate, well-integrated tannins showing a round, plush youthful. Distinct notes of vanilla and oak spice from aging in American oak add to the personality of the wine, surely one of our most popular Napa offerings. Earthy flavors enhance the fruit flavors in this wine, especially with foods such as herb roasted chicken, grilled pork, caramelized eggplant, sautéed greens, roasted potatoes or vegetables and aged Jack and Gouda cheese.

Wine AdvocateThe 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Allomi is 86% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest 11% Petite Sirah and 3% Petit Verdot. This comes from Pope Valley and is a solidly made wine, aged 18 months in about one-fourth American oak. Dense purple, with notes of black cherry and blackcurrant fruit with some licorice and soil undertones, some oak is also present in this full-bodied, slightly rustic, but chewy, fleshy wine to drink over the next 7-8 years.

Wine SpectatorA solid if somewhat muddled presentation, this is intense and offers plenty of dark berry flavors. The oak comes across as dense and earthy, like chewing on a piece of bark. Drink now through 2023. 51,242 cases made.
