Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley
Meaning “good year,” Bon Anno, the Italian saying heralds the celebration of good times, and is a fortuitous play on Vintner Matthew Bonnano’s last name.
With their first release in 2004, BonAnno Cabs are consistently fruit forward, juicy, ripe and luscious, offering tremendous value for the price - and Napa Valley name recognition.
BonAnno wines should have a place on your table every night - Salute!
The 2016 wine grape harvest was early, with a mostly normal yield of exceptional quality. The early start in the spring and the mild weather over the summer resulted in long hang time, with great flavor development and very reasonable sugars. 2016 is another solid year amidst a string of excellent vintages.
The 2016 BonAnno Cabernet Sauvignon fruit was sourced from several prime valley floor vineyards from within the St. Helena, Rutherford and Oak Knoll districts.
Owner/Winemaker Matt Bonanno works closely with several vineyard managers throughout the Napa Valley to ensure the quality of his fruit and maximize the potential for each vintage.
A deep ruby red, this seductive Cab shows classic Cabernet Sauvignon aromas of spice and sage followed by a mix of blueberries and blackberries with fresh raspberry notes. With a nice balance of acid and well integrated tannins, this wine is smooth, supple and sleek in the mouth: it is well balanced across the palate showcasing flavors of dark fruit, currants and hints of mineral and anise.
Crafted to be enjoyed upon release, this wine will also stand the test of time for those who can wait!
