Pursuit Pursuit Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
Some wines just make no financial sense. I guess it helps if you don’t need the money.
Billionaire Alejandro Bulgheroni spared no expense in crafting a world-class Napa Winery. The valley’s most exclusive vineyards? Check. Beckstoffer (To Kalon, Las Piedras Vineyard, Dr. Crane).
The world’s foremost winemaker? Nope. How about three? So he tapped New Zealand born Matt Sands (Screaming Eagle, Bryant Family) and the two most famous wine consultants in the world, Phillipe Melka (Petrus, Haut-Brion, Ridge, Silver Oak and more) and Michel Rolland (too many wineries to name).
With Beckstoffer To Kalon and Dr. Crane fruit at their disposal and the world’s best winemaking team, these wines typically never see the light of day beyond their tiny allocation list. But in 2020, anything is possible, and for us, that means that Pursuit Cabernet Sauvignon and Campfire Proprietary Red at a ridiculous price !
94% Cabernet Sauvignon | 3% Cabernet Franc | 3% Petit Verdot
Supple and juicy in approachable layers of currant and black cherry, this wine offers a thread of acidity throughout an otherwise intensely ripe, robust weight. The tannins lean supple, with an accent of clove on the lengthy finish.
