Aromas of crushed violets and crème de cassis mingle with roasted espresso and shaved dark chocolate. The palate adds sweet Bing cherry fruit with complex layers of cola, star anise, clove and porcini powder. The richly textured, creamy mouth feel leads to soft, ripe tannins on the long finish. 

The 2011 Napa Valley growing season was one marked by very cool temperatures which led to our latest harvest to date here at Kelleher Family Vineyard.  We picked on November 2nd , 2011 in the early morning hours, finishing just before the skies opened up and brought inches of rain.  We have found that this vintage has provided us with a flavor profile that developed at a lower Brix which has enabled us to make a truly elegant wine with softer tannin structure.

Tasting Notes
Our 2011 Kelleher "Brix Vineyard" Cabernet Sauvignon is the most approachable vintage we have offered on release. Aromas of crushed violets and crème de cassis mingle with roasted espresso and shaved dark chocolate. The palate adds sweet Bing cherry fruit with complex layers of cola, star anise, clove and porcini powder. The richly textured, creamy mouthfeel leads to soft, ripe tannins on the long finish. It is enjoyable now but it will continue to improve over the next several years in bottle.
Vineyard Notes
All fruit is from our estate vineyard in the Oakville Appellation in the Napa Valley.
