Joe Wagner is the youngest son of Chuck Wagner - think Caymus. Conundrum is another family venture. Joe is a 5th generation Napa Valley winemaker who was trained by a family who pioneered the industry in the area. At 19, Joe launched Belle Glos, and later developed and sold Meiomi Pinot Noirs. He is the genuine article. We've managed to get our hands on some of his latest creation: Quilt. The 2015 is the second release of a Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon which sources grapes from a patchwork of AVA's in order to achieve optimal flavor, color and texture. It's bold, rich, and seductive, offering jammy dark fruit, layers of spices, all beautifully balanced and ridiculously food friendly. You'll want to drink it with grilled, seared, smoked or roasted meats. Napa Cabs don't come around at this price often, and certainly not with this kind of pedigree. Cheers winelovers!

Winery: "The aroma is crème de cassis, hazelnut, cocoa, blackberry preserves, charred meat, and blackberry pie. Rich and satisfying on the palate with dark chocolate, yogurt, molasses, brown sugar and rhubarb notes.

While the majority of the fruit comes from the floor of the Napa Valley to achieve the richness and elegance desired, we also relied on some grapes grown in the well-drained gravelly soils of the side slopes and at low elevations in the more mountainous areas for a blend with more structure and complexity than we could have achieved had we used fruit grown solely in a single region. Napa Valley AVAs: Oakville, St. Helena, Atlas Peak, Coombsville, Calistoga, and Howell Mountain.

Food Pairing: Cowboy-cut, grilled rib eye steak with béarnaise sauce; lamb chops with balsamic reduction; or a charcuterie platter with smoked duck breast, dry-cured pork sausage, figs, pecans and sliced apple. "
