Claus Janzen doesn't shy away from taking the road less traveled. He originally made his mark on the local wine scene with the wholly unique "Bacio Divino," arguably Napa's most successful Tuscan-inspired red. When he moved that project into the world of Cabernet, he did so with the philosophy that it would be the vineyards rather than the blend that would drive the program's success. So, like many other notable Cabernet producers, Claus turned to vine guru Andy Beckstoffer for fruit, and the rest as they say, is history. With the help of lauded winemaker Kirk Venge, he has created a range of Napa Cabernets with completely unique personalities, and the critics have taken note. He's even added in a sensational Pinot Noir from a serious vineyard down south. Year in and year out, you'd be wise to pay attention to this lauded producer.
94 Points - James Suckling... Lots of dried fruit with dates, plums and wood undertones. Dried sweet tobacco, too. Full-bodied and deep with ripe fruit and walnut highlights. It’s got all the bells and whistles!
94 Points - Wine Enthusiast... This 100% varietal wine is made from Beckstoffer Heritage vineyards' fruit as well as the producer's own Cloudy's Vineyard. Juicy in black cherry and berry, with a hint of vanilla, it is powerfully built with underlying elegance and impressive integration.
