On the nose, bright cassis, cherries, chocolate covered strawberries, smoked bacon fat, pencil shavings, wet earth, hints of dried bay leaves, cardamom, fennel and finishes with accents of floral aromatics. Flavors of sweet red fruits, smoke, cigarbox, dried spice rub, anise seed, cinnamon and other baking spices with loads of dark chocolate on the end. Being a classic Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon, the wine is very plush with great density and layers of richness across the finish.
|Within Napa Valley, the Regusci name is synonymous with farming. Through four generations, our commitment to agriculture and our family Ranch remains unwaivering. Through this love and dedication, we are able to grow and craft some of the highest quality wines in the entire world.
In 1932, Gaetano Regusci purchased our 289-acre estate in the Stags Leap District, which included one of the preeminent wineries of its time: the Grigbsy-Occidental Winery (est. 1878). At that time the wine industry was certainly not what it is today. Aside from growing and making homemade wine and selling grapes, Gaetano wrestled a living from the land. He farmed corn, hay, walnuts, plums. He ran a dairy, ranched cattle and operated a slaughterhouse and a retail market selling our primary ranch products-meat and milk.
When Gaetano’s son Angelo took over the family Ranch in the 1960s, he began planting Bordeaux varietals on our estate. Though a practical decision at the time, it would prove to be visionary within a few decades. As the wine industry began to flourish, so did our vineyards; and soon, we planted the 160 acres of grapes that reside on our estate today.
As luck would have it, Angelo’s son Jim became a farmer too, taking over Ranch duties in the 1990s. With decades of grape growing experience, having farmed for many of Napa Valley’s most notable vineyards, Jim decided to establish Regusci Winery in 1996 with a commitment to growing premium estate wines.
Today we welcome guests to our family Ranch in the heart of the renowned Stags Leap District to share our deep history, breathtaking views and our incredible wines.
