Winemaker Notes:

Pleinair presents Galerie's interpretation of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. The name refers to the French painters' method of painting outdoors (en plein air), which developed around the same time as Napa's first European-style vineyards in the 1800s. Fruit from vineyards with diverse soil types brings complexity and depth to the finished wine, which shows rich black fruit, spice and floral notes with a firm tannin structure and balanced acidity.

The 2017 Pleinair Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon has a very deep garnet-purple color and bursts from the glass with crushed blueberries, black cherry compote and boysenberries with touches of raisin cake, Chinese five spice and potpourri. Full-bodied, rich and spicy in the mouth, it has lovely freshness and a lovely bit of chew texturing the finish. 810 cases produced.

The Galerie wines are now made by Gianna Kelly. The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Pleinair has a bright, juicy nose of blueberries, cassis, violets, and spring flowers as well as a rather firm, streamlined style on the palate. It has some grippy tannins, so give it a year or two.
