Vineyard 29

Founded in 1989, Vineyard 29 is a family-owned winery in St. Helena that produces magnificent wines from two estate vineyards – Vineyard 29 and Aida. Chuck and Anne McMinn purchased the winery in 2000 and immediately began construction on a state-of-the-art winery and cave facility. Together with their top-notch team – David Abreu as vineyard manager and Philippe Melka as winemaker – Vineyard 29 makes some of the finest wines in the Napa Valley.

Vineyard 29 2011 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon

Our 2011 29 Estate Cabernet is a pure expression of Cabernet Sauvignon. Aromatics on this regal wine boast savory notes of sage, dried lavender, new leather and bright red plums. A generous palate further entices with dark black fruits, violets and clean graphite while red currants provide a lingering touch of brightness. Firmer tannins and a bright acidity make this wine a perfect match for beautifully marbled New York Strip Steak. Our 29 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon will benefit by 3 years of bottle age and generous decanting developing gracefully over the next 20 to 25 years.

Vineyard 29 2012 CRU Cabernet Sauvignon

Housed within this deep garnet hued wine, lifted aromas of sweet bing and black cherries, plums and creamy melted chocolate immediately emerge from the glass. On the palate, these aromas meld to present a gorgeous mouth feel of ripe plums, decadent chocolate covered cherries, tar and graphite. A warm and moderate growing season allowed for the perfect balance between ripe supple tannins and a vibrant acid structure with a clean minerality even further enhancing that balance. Expect a long, silky finish and excellent aging potential
