Description

The Story:  This venture is still somewhat below the radar, although I’ve been working with them for about 5 years now.  Tiny production, but amazing quality Cabernet sourced from one of Napa’s premium vinyeards, which would be classified as  a “First Growth Vineyard” in France – So let’s call it “Top-of-the-line” here! 

Memento Mori is translated from Latin as “Remember That You Will Die”. 

The Winery owners’ Hayes Drumwright, Adriel Lares & Adam Craun translation is “Remember To Live”. 

Robert Parker 99 Points: “The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from the Beckstoffer Dr. Crane and Las Piedras vineyards, Oakville Ranch vineyard and Weitz vineyard, aged 22 months in 100% new French oak. Very deep purple-black in color, it reveals stunning scents of crème de cassis, wild blueberries, blackberry compote and dried mulberries with hints of Chinese five spice, spearmint and unsmoked cigars with a waft of cedar chest. Full-bodied, with a rock-solid structure of firm, super ripe tannins plus seamless freshness, it finishes very long with provocative mineral accents."
