Carter Cellars Revilo Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2006
This elegant wine shows off a bright, red fruit core, tempered with superbly integrated tannins. A profusion of berries, currant, and spice flavors drape themselves over a fine structure, ending in a stylish, long-drawn finish.
"The 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Revilo Vineyard shows restraint and minerality along with herbaceous black currant fruit and loamy soil notes. It is a structured, tannic ... there is a lot going on here, and another 3-4 years of bottle age is necessary to see what will develop. "

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.
