Napa Cabernet Sauvignon, Aftermath 2011

Inventory Status: Out of Stock - do not order this
product at this time


This is the stunning debut vintage of Aftermath. 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from a 15-acre vineyard on the Silverado Bench overlooking the valley southeast of Oak Knoll. The estate was bought by Jim Kaplan, an Applied Mathematics professor at BU who made a fortune advising option traders using deep mathematics. Kaplan hired a stellar team consisting of winemaker Dave Phinney of Orin Swift, viticulturalist (and winemaker) Steve Matthiason, and vineyard manager John Truchard of Truchard Vineyards. 2011 is my favorite Napa vintage in quite a while. The best wines show balance, structure, and authenticity. This 2011 Aftermath Cabernet did not disappoint. Immediately it was stunning. Precise Cabernet flavors with depth and concentration, balanced by excellent acidity and fine tannins. It tastes rich but also dry because of the elegance of the fruit. I can tell you, I don't taste Napa Cabernet Sauvignon with this superb class and finesse often. Buy this before it's discovered!
