Les Belles Collines Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Les Belles Collines


   The Wine

晚開花且成熟時間漫長的Cabernet Sauvignon跟Napa Valley 充足的日照條件與太平洋洋流帶來的溫差所形成溫暖的氣候條件可以說是最佳組合,也因此Napa 成為許多頂尖美國膜拜酒的同義詞。Napa谷地處內陸,降雨量低,日照炎熱且照射時間充足,成為葡萄得以完全成熟的關鍵,並使得太平洋沿岸的熱輻射效果形成濃霧,向北穿過河谷拉升,包覆葡萄園,幫助Cabernet Sauvignon葡萄在醣類,單寧與酚類物質成熟的同時,也保有充足的酸度。

David Pan 更走訪Napa Valley各處,從地質學探訪Napa Valley超過30種以上複雜的土壤組成與地形走勢,並觀察當地的微型氣候,挑選品質最佳的葡萄園。

Wine Enthusiast 93

Sumptuous layers of mocha, blackberry and black cherry wrap around tight-grained tannins and oak. The freshness on the back of the palate helps keep the wine crisp and focused against the powerful ripeness.





Wine Enthusiast 94

Blended with 12% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot, this lovely wine was aged 20 months in 75% new French oak. Cedar, pencil lead, clove and dark chocolate accent a powerful core of cassis, with a frame of focused acidity and polished tannins.




Wine Enthusiast 93

Plush, lush and brightly encased in rich red fruit, this bold, full-bodied wine includes 10% Merlot and trace amounts of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Integrated oak and powerful tannic weight lend balance to the strucutred frame.





Wine Enthusiast 91

Woody pencil shavings and dried herb combine on the nose and palate in this Cabernet that’s blended with 8% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc and 2% Malbec. Succulent red currant and cassis come to life on the midpalate, with a tannic backbone that emphasizes final touches of black pepper and clove.


Wine Enthusiast 92

Softened by 10% Merlot, 3% Malbec and 1% Petit Verdot, this is a medium-bodied, elegant wine, with highlights of coffee, cedar and cherry-vanilla. Classic elements of cedar and dried herb complement firm, solid tannin.


Wine Enthusiast 93 (Cellar Selection)

Given slightly less new oak (60%) than the producer’s Les Sommets bottling, this is an equally rewarding wine, blended with 12% Merlot. Red fruit dominates atop a soft grip of leather, pencil lead and cedar. The considerable density of the tannins and overall firm texture suggest this will benefit from further aging; drink 2018–2022.


Wine Enthusiast 88

This substantially juicy Cabernet is classic in notes of black currant, cranberry and herb. It’s sturdy on the palate without becoming overbearing or overweight, finishing balanced and with ample finesse.


Wine Enthusiast 91

Ripe cherry, blackberry and new oak flavors mark this gorgeous Cabernet. The tannins are strong but refined. Blended with Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, it’s a luxurious, elegant wine for drinking now and over the next eight years.


Wine Enthusiast 93

Made in the modern style of soit, sweet opulence, this its insanely rich, with notes of cherry marmalade, red currant, milk chocolate and sweet cedar flavors that continue onto the long, smooth finish. It’s a blend of the traditional red Bordeaux varieties. and while it was aged in 1oo% new French oak, it’s not too oaky. Drink over the next six years for its youthful beauty.
