Carter Cellars Revilo Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2005


Tasting Notes

Revilo is located just across from the renowned Hundred Acre vineyard. Dark fruits, mineral acidity and plenty of spice are the main characteristics of this seamless Cabernet.

"Sleek and supple while notably herbal, with touches of mineral and pebble. The dried currant flavors have a charry oak edge as well, so short-term cellaring should work to its advantage...Drink now through 2014."

The History of the Revilo Vineyard

Revilo Vineyard is located off of Silverado Trail by the Meadowood Resort and a stone’s throw away from some of St. Helena’s famous vineyards.  Its clayey soil was farmed and named after Reg Oliver, (Revilo backwards), the owner of El Molino Winery who passed away in 2004. While you might know of El Molino for their stellar Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays, Reg did an incredible job farming his Cabernet vineyard, and his daughter Lily continues the tradition.  Their efforts helped pave the way for Carter Cellar's great success with the Revilo label.
