2016 Steele Red Hills Cabernet Sauvignon

2016 Steele Red Hills Cabernet Sauvignon


Steele Wines has been a staple on our shelves for over 20 years. Over the years our relationship with Jed Steele and his team has developed in to a wonderful friendship. We consider ourselves fortunate to represent Jed’s wines. He has been making wine in the Valley for over 50 years. Starting out, Steele Wines produced less than 1,000 cases total. Located in Lake County (about 1 hour north of Napa Valley), it is here he crafts these excellent value, old-school Cali wines. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do!

The Red Hills appellation in Lake County is a new AVA (American Viticultural Area). The iron-rich, red soil of Red Hills is laden with obsidian, a glassy black volcanic rock that glistens in the afternoon sun. Well known Napa Valley grape grower, Andy Beckstoffer, bought up a piece of the Red Hills AVA, planting cabernet sauvignon and other Bordeaux varietals with which he is very familiar. Jed has been receiving grapes from Andy since 2002. This wine has a rich, fruit-forward elegance. A spicy fruit and berry core backed up by soft tannins makes it a nice glass of wine for casual sipping among friends.
