About the Wine 

Steve Brady is the passionate founder and owner of On Q Wines. This cult-status winery is located in the heart of Napa Valley's Coombsville sub-appellation, where this ultra-premium and extremely limited wine is carefully crafted from only the finest grapes. This is true luxury in a bottle.

Growing up in Napa Valley, Steve developed a deep appreciation for the region's rich winemaking history. His love for wine and music soon became intertwined, as he discovered that the creation of both required impeccable timing. Since he was a child, Steve has played the trumpet. The name “On Q” perfectly portrays his love for this instrument. A cue is a gesture by a conductor signaling musicians that it is time to begin a piece. Steve says, “In wine, music, and life, timing is everything”.

Steve combines his artistic side with attention to detail to produce wines of unparalleled quality and sophistication. From his first vineyard planted in 2003, Steve's three daughters have been instrumental in his winemaking endeavors, and the family's dedication shows in every bottle. In 2010, Steve launched On Q Wines, and since the first vintage, he received glowing reviews and high scores, and today, these high scores and praises haven’t stopped. 

This is a true garage wine from Napa crafted by legendary winemaker Julien Fayard, On Q’s consultant. Julien Fayard is a very well-known man in the wine industry. His expertise includes working in some of the most admired brands in the world like Château Lafite Rothschild, Quintessa, and Atelier Melka.

2021 is looking to be one of the vintages of the decade. Vinous Media blessed this year with a 95-98 point score, and said:"Two thousand twenty-one is a fabulous vintage in Napa Valley. That’s the good news. The not so good news is that production is down sharply, 30-50% in many cases. The wines have tremendous energy as well as finesse. In tasting, the 2021s show some of the savory intensity of other drought vintages – 2013 and 2014 come to mind – but with more aromatic explosiveness and greater inner sweetness."

Aging: 30 months in French oak barrels.

Tasting Notes: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. A wine of depth as well as energy, the Oakville Cabernet is both complete and absolutely delicious. Time will bring out a whole range of earth, tobacco, spice and cocoa notes to play off a core of intense, dark-fleshed fruit with a nice minerality on the finish.

Black cherry and currants are surrounded by slate and espresso. Dried violets add depth and texture to this opulent red. ~95 Tasting Panel Review
