Fait-Main 2016 Bettinelli Sleeping Lady Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley

Bettinelli Sleeping Lady Vineyard started as a country estate for gold rush-era San Franciscans and still feels like you should be riding up to the 1870s house on horseback. This west Yountville vineyard is named for the distinctive foothills behind the property, which look like a woman laying on her side.

The historic appearance of the property belies the innovation happening in the vineyard. Larry Bettinelli replanted the vineyards and invented a new trellis system that optimizes sun and air exposure for the clusters. His family is embracing new cutting edge technology that lets us track photosynthesis activity, vine stress levels, and phenolic evolution throughout the year. They grow six clones of Cabernet Sauvignon at Bettinelli Sleeping Lady Vineyard, and we work together on each year’s final blend.

Wines from this site are elegant and feminine. Floral notes, graphite, bright red fruits, finesse.

Jeb Dunnuck - 97 Points
"From a terrific vineyard on the west side of Yountville, and one I suspect will be more well known in the future due to the quality of the farming, the 100% Cabernet 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Bettinelli Sleeping Lady is a pretty, elegant yet full-bodied beauty that has terrific notes of blue fruits, violets, bay leaf, and damp earth. It has an almost mountain fruit-like tension and purity, fine tannins, and a great finish. In short, it's a thrilling Napa Valley Cabernet that's going to keep for 25 years or more."

James Suckling - 95 points
"This is solid and tight with a beautiful center palate of dark fruit, hazelnuts and lightly toasted oak. Full body. Sweet fruit in the center palate. Very classy. Give it three to four years to soften, but already impressive."
