2020 Fortivo Red Bordeaux Blend, 750ml
82% Cabernet Sauvignon from Highly Regarded Napa Valley Vineyards!
Mother Nature guides our farming practices and winemaking decisions year after year. In 2020, pernicious growing conditions led us to the painful decision to refrain from bottling our fan-favorite Reserve and Signature Cabernet Sauvignons. Instead, for this vintage, we contributed this quintessential Napa Cab, sourced from highly regarded Napa Valley vineyards, into a wine greater than the sum of its parts: the 2020 Fortivo Bordeaux blend, aged in 50% new oak and comprised of 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Estate Cabernet Franc, and 8% Estate Malbec.
2020 is considered by wine writers and critics as a vintage of strength and resiliency, a concept encapsulated by our Fortivo (which loosely translates to “strong” in Italian).
"Aromas of dark berries, toasted spices, crushed walnut and cedar. Full-bodied, rich and concentrated with tight tannins and juicy dark fruits. Firm, spicy finish."
