Wine Enthusiast, May 2019

"A new offering from the producer, this is a classically tropical, honeyed white wine, viscous, thick and oaky, with a touch of butter teasing the palate as it opens in the glass. For fans of full-bodied flavor, this is creamy and buttery in spades." – V. B.

"This is a full-bodied and broadly structured wine, lush and plush with plenty of wide-ranging appeal. Baking spice, cherry and plum combine around earthy tannin and smoky oak – the fruit always front and center." – V.B.

Wine Enthusiast, November 2019

This wine has multi-dimensional floral notes from Chrysler Rose to Jasmine and infused with citron lemon peel notes. On the palate it explodes with refreshing tropical fruit notes including guava and lychee with tart lemon citrus notes on the finish. This wine is as light as a feather, but deft in its profile negotiating a perfect balance between fruit flavors, acidity and dryness.

Wine Enthusiast, September 2019

The beautiful aromatics are tropical with passionfruit, green papaya and mango with subtle jasmine. The palate is crisp and expresses juicy lemon citrus with key lime, honey and a snap of ginger. It finishes perfectly dry, allowing for the snappy, refreshing acidity to be revisited.

The wine has a long and elegant finish and is ideal with fresh oysters on the half shell and pairs well with fresh cracked crab or crab cakes, grilled fish, sea scallops or chicken korma, a mildly spicy almond chicken curry (Indian), and goes nicely with grilled wild Salmon with sweet potatoes and baked organic asparagus.

The palate is rich with honey, ripe pear and baked apple tart flavors which bounce off additional textured custard notes. The wine has a long finish with opulent Tahitian vanilla, caramel and toast while allowing just the right amount of tropical acidity in the form of guava, mango and passionfruit.

The aromas of this wine are of ripe black cherry with some leather and earth notes in the backdrop. The ripe cherry is sappy and rich on the palate and the wine finishes with an elegant silky texture best described as supple and combines well with the strawberry, raspberry coulis and a suggestion of spicy clove and cinnamon.

Vinum 2016 Red Dirt Red (Paso Robles) - Very strong smoky aromas of hickory and a solid pepper spice give a savory background to the backdrop of blackberry fruit on the nose of this bottling. That smoke carries into the palate, where roasted wood, campfire and bacon flavors meet with black currant and caramel. —M.K.
abv: 14.5% Price: $25

This is the most concentrated vintage of Red Dirt Red we have ever made. It expresses a dark plum, cranberry staining color which comes from low yielding, concentrated grapes.

Wine Enthusiast,
August 2018

"This is a seriously delicious wine that's packed tightly with fruit, floral and spice flavors and has a firm but velvety texture that makes it a pleasure to sip. It has a deep dark ruby color, experssive aromas, generous black-cherry and dark chocolate flavors and a lingering finish. Best after 2022."

"Dense aromas of black currant, earthy herbs, tobacco and pencil shavings show on the nose of this bottling. Brighter touches of plum and mulberry power the palate, where chopped herbs and graphite flavors add complexity." – M.K.

Wine Enthusiast, October 2018

“This wine packs a punch and overdelivers quality for the price. This is a crowd-pleaser in its lush, soft and fruity combination of grilled meat, bacon and smoky tannin. Those big bold elements are complemented by plenty of black-cherry jam.”

Vinum Cellars was established in 1997 based on producing value oriented, varietal/appellation specific wines. Cabernet Sauvignon from the Napa Valley confirms our belief that only specific grape varietals should be grown within appellations that are ideally suited to the varietal.

92 Points, Cellar Selection, Wine Enthusiast
Impressive at any price, but especially notable at this cost, this 100% varietal red is a testament to the power and concentration of the vintage, integrated with a push of tannin on the back of the tongue. Spicy clove and pepper ride a wave of cassis, dark cherry and chocolate, needing time to unwind in the glass. It will do well in the cellar through 2028.

92 points, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate "The wine hits the palate with a voluptuous texture, a full-bodied mouthfeel, silky tannins and a long, long finish. At $42.00 a bottle, it is a steal."

"This is a sleeper selection, coming from the eastern side of Napa near Atlas Peak. At $42.00, this is an outstanding value for a top Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa. Drink now-2030." - Robert Parker
