Sweet and viscous, it possesses a mouthwatering acidity that enables it to fill the entire palate.

Winemaker Notes
Our 2006 Danielli is a beautiful r ed-black color. The aromas are so true t o the Estate with red and black licorice candy, cassis, and tar dominating. The mouth is sweet and viscous, yet it possesses a mouthwatering acidity that enables it to fill the entire palate. Like all 2006 Cabernets, and especially those from the mountains, I recommend decanting at least several hours before serving for maximum enjoyment. Because of its freshness and brightness, this wine should age for decades.

Production Notes
Danielli is the flagship wine of Kuleto Estate. It is the purest and most dramatic expression of Cabernet Sauvignon from our remote ranch in the rugged mountains of eastern Napa Valley.

The 2006 vintage produced wines with amazing purity and complexity. Yields were slightly below normal, so the vines didn’t have to struggle to produce fruit with great flavor concentration. For Cabernet it featured a 33- day harvest that provided a diverse range of flavors and styles. Very moderate temperatures during the months of September and October gave us wines with terrific flavor, density and acidity – a rare combination in Napa Valley Cabernet.

We began assembling Danielli during the first spring after harvest, tasting every lot and barrel to isolate potential candidates. We were looking for those rare wines that stood above their peers, the individual barrels that possessed the “it” factor. The essential requirements were depth, persistent and true aromatics, concentration and meaty tannins.
