91pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Salvestrin's 2020 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley comes largely from the winery's Crystal Springs Vineyard. A blend of 79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Petit Verdot, 8% Malbec and 4% Merlot, it was picked between September 12 and September 21. Scents of ripe cherries, restrained cedar, mocha shadings and bright raspberries appear on the nose, while the palate is medium to full-bodied, framed by gently dusty tannins and finishing tart and refreshing.

91pts James Suckling

Pure and fresh nose with a hint of stones and oatmeal to the lemon curd and green apples. Nicely saline on the medium-bodied palate with some grapefruit skins and white almonds in the finish. Drink now

91pts Wine Enthusiast

This youthful, muscular, tannic wine is packed with generous red and dark plums, black cherries and oak spices that will evolve and sublimate as the tannins resolve over time. Fine to drink soon with meaty, cheesy dishes.

Winemaker Notes

The 2020 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon features a vibrant mélange of black cherry, black currants, cedar, and dried violets. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with a distinct silkiness throughout, plus a touch of minerality that adds freshness and depth. There’s a sense of grace and liveliness to this wine. The finish is laser focused with refined length and whispers hints of dark chocolate and blackberry.

Winery Notes

It began when Italian immigrants John and Emma Salvestrin fell in love with St. Helena while visiting friends in the early 1920s. In 1932 they purchased a portion of the historic Crane Ranch, including the Victorian home of Dr. Crane. With the repeal of prohibition in 1933, they started selling grapes as the wine industry began to grown again.

Ed Salvestrin, who grew up on the family vineyard, continued to grow quality grapes through the 60s, 70s, and 80s preserving the family legacy for future generations. He still lives on the site and frequently tends to his fruit trees when he's not helping out in the vineyard.
