Just released, welcome to the debut vintage of this special bottle made by Nigel Kinsman. Coined as one of the most exciting new wineries in Napa Valley by Antonio Galloni and Lisa Perrotti-Brown, the estate vineyards are located on Howell Mountain and Diamond Mountain. This 2019 Red comes from their vineyard manager's own property, Abreu Las Posadas, which is also on Howell Mountain. David Abreu is a legend for not only the vineyards he has cultivated and farms daily, but also for his own. Those fortunate enough to have access to his own fruit have made sensational wines under their own labels (Colgin, Bryant, now Impensata). A blend of 58% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37% Cabernet Franc, 4% Petit Verdot, and the rest Malbec, this wine is gorgeous- it’s rich, full-bodied and represents the best of what Howell Mountain and David Abreu’s fruit has to offer in a very good vintage. Originally meant to be an experiment detailing the similarities between Impensata’s own estate vineyard down the road and David’s vineyard in soil, climate, and exposure, resulted in this first Proprietary Red. 279 cases were made. I would jump at this opportunity to get a few bottles to cellar if you can.
