Seavey’s 2014 ‘Caravina’ Cabernet Sauvignon marks the 16th vintage of this 100% estate produced wine from the steep hillside blocks of Seavey Vineyard in Napa Valley. Seavey Winemakers Jim Duane and Philippe Melka follow classic Bordeaux methods when crafting this wine, always with the intention of capturing the terroir of this special property and the elegance and freshness of this award winning fruit. Beautiful layers of graphite, tea rose, sweet tobacco and Mexican chocolate combine with a firm tannic grip to give this wine bright energy, verve and freshness. The intense minerality speaks to Seavey’s rugged hillside Cabernet vineyards and it seamlessly balances the dark fruit of this wine. Enjoy!
