California 9th Pour: St Helena Estates Cabernet Sauvignon

In the California wine class, we are going to be tasting wines from all over the Sonoma and Napa Valley counties, and particularly I am going to point out one of our finale wines today which is the Revana Family St Helena Estate Cabernet Sauvignon.

This is a combination of four blocks of a nine acre site in St Helena, 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, Clone 7 and Clone 337 made by Thomas Rivers Brown, definitely one of those smaller production, beautiful Cabernets out of the Valley that have amazing longevity, and drinks quite well. We are going to enjoy that in class today!
