About the Winery
Delectus is a family-owned winery that handcrafts luxury red wines from select vineyards throughout Napa Valley and Knights Valley. We produce 4500 cases annually of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Syrah most of which is sold directly through the winery. Delectus wines have received high scores and praise from wine critics and consumers alike. They pride themselves in producing expressive red wines that are big and bold without compromising the art of winemaking. Delectus not only delivers exceptional wines but a unique drinking experience as well.
This vintage was sourced from a rocky hillside vineyard perched above the fog line in Knights Valley. There the terroir is conducive to making inky, concentrated wines of great distinction. That is the essence of Delectus.
Tasting notes: Red Wine. 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. The 2014 Boulder Falls is dense, opulent, and classic Delectus. Bramble, cassis, and raspberry compote aromas meet ripe fruit flavors and spice on the palate. Finely woven tannins and huge palate weight give this wine lots to love. Age-worthy but also appreciable now; that’s what we call a “win, win”
The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Boulder Falls is another painfully extracted, rich, full-bodied wine with enormous extract, massive body, and richness in a wine seemingly built for 30 or more years of cellaring. Impatient connoisseurs and consumers not willing to defer gratification should steer far clear of this blockbuster, which really requires a decade of cellaring. Kudos to Delectus for making wines that ultimately will prove the magnificent aging potential of what they’re doing in Knights Valley. ~95+ (V. 2013) Robert Parker
