Seavey’s 2016 Chardonnay offers an exotic bouquet of pineapple, lemon custard, lime blossom, star fruit and mandarin peel with a gentle topnote of graham cracker pie crust. On the palate, the wine is crisp and bright, with lovely focus and grip and a long mouth-watering and vibrant finish. As always, you will find Seavey’s signature Chardonnay style of light oak, bright acidity, and lively minerality.
“There’s just 213 cases of the 2015 Merlot and it’s up with the top expressions of this variety coming from Napa today. Just packed with black cherries, plums, chocolate, damp earth and lead pencil aromas and flavors (it reminded me of a young La Mondotte), this beauty is full-bodied, ripe, concentrated, and downright sexy on the palate. Don’t miss it.” Jeb Dunnuck (Dec. 2017) – 95 points
2015 CARAVINA CABERNET
“The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Caravina packs a serious punch. Once again a real overachiever, the Caravina offers notable density and pure power in its dark plum, chocolate, lavender and leather flavors. The 2015 is going to need at least a few years to shed some of its baby fat, after which it should drink beautifully for a number of years. This is a very serious second wine from Seavey. At many Napa Valley properties, this would be the top wine.” Antonio Galloni (Mar. 2018) – 92+ points
