Pezzato makes one wine each vintage which showcases the best of what Napa Valley has to offer: Cabernet Sauvignon. With only one wine, we can’t risk flaws in our execution. Michael maintains a singular focus on the wine, judiciously selecting vineyards, sourcing tightly-allocated barrels from highly-regarded coopers and directing all aspects of winegrowing, from pruning through harvest.
The 2019 Pezzato Cabernet Sauvignon has a great freshness and vibrancy. On the nose, aromas of juicy strawberries and dried cherries give way to graphite and dark chocolate shavings. As you sip, the velvety tannin structure gently coats your mouth in a supple and enticing way providing a great mid-palate richness that is not overly harsh. There is a stone fruit quality on the palate that gives way to a mix of cassis, pencil shavings and cedar. The finish is framed by nicely in-check tannins that grip the back of your mouth for an extended period of time.
“...it's full-bodied, with an elegant, seamless texture and terrific tannins. It’s another impressive, singular wine from Michael Savaiano that’s well worth seeking out.“
Our inaugural release exceeded all of our expectations. Aromas of crushed rock, dried tobacco leaf and rhubarb fill your glass. The interplay of fresh acidity and supple tannins coats your palate from start to finish with the weight and depth you expect from an opulent Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. The finish is impressive, lingering far longer than you may allow before taking a second sip.
