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, 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.
Aging: 24 months in French oak barrels.
Tasting Notes: This is an endlessly powerful, soulful, über-luxurious blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Petite Verdot that matured 24 months in new oak adding a healthy flavor of earth and spice. Music to our ears.
Named for Beethoven’s 23rd piano sonata, inspired notes of violets, slate, licorice, and black coffee are resounding. Rich and creamy, intense and powerful, this elegant wine is built to last. ~96 Tasting Panel Magazine
