While some 2011 Napa Valley Cabernet suffered with the critics, Vineyard 29's Aida Cabernet stood out. Almost Bordeaux like, the 2011 Aida is infused with red and black fruits, tobacco and herbs. Silky and smooth tannins finish long. Decant and enjoy, this one will also age!


Vinous 93+ Pts - According to Antonio Galloni - The 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Aida Estate is beautifully nuanced in this vintage. Espresso, rosemary, earthiness and tobacco all add considerable nuance to the dark fruit. This is an expressive, mineral-drenched vintage for the Aida, with great flavor intensity, fabulous inner perfume and compelling balance. In 2011, the Aida is 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Petit Verdot.

According to Robert Parker - From a vineyard made famous by Larry Turley when he was buying Zinfandel off this vineyard (which looks a lot like the stone-strewn vineyards of Chateauneuf du Pape), the 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Aida Estate (95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Petit Verdot) is a rarity... an outstanding valley floor offering in 2011. Roasted herbs, Provencal garrigue, sweet black currants and cherries as well as plenty of peppery spice are all present in this medium-bodied, lush, sensual Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink it over the next 8-10 years.

According to Stephen Tanzer - Deep ruby-red. Pungent aromas of blueberry, cassis, minerals, tar, herbs and mint. A bit less nuanced in the mouth than the nose suggests, showing a slightly green quality but a suave texture to the flavors of black fruits, warm bricks, spices and dried herbs. A smaller-scaled wine by the standards of this bottling, but with a serious spine of tannins and acids. 14.8% ABV.
