Owner/Winemaker Phillipe Langner brings his French Bordeaux style to this excellent, and fine-value, Napa Cabernet. Bordeaux-like nose of black currant, Maduro cigar and dark chocolate. Taste black cherry, black truffle, wheat toast, black raspberry. Pleasing, food-friendly, savory finish of earth & fruit. Hesperian produces small lots Cabernet Sauvignon wines from various appellations of the Napa Valley to showcase terroir. The wines are produced with extreme attention to detail both in the vineyards and in the cellar. The wines are precise, pure, delicious and age-worthy. They focus on finding unique vineyard sites with soils, climate and aspects ideal for growing exquisite wine grapes, and supervise viticultural practices very closely. In the winery gentle handling, minimal intervention, and strict monitoring of the wine allow the grapes to speak for themselves.
