2017 Cresta Velia Spring Release February 07 2017

Dear Friends,

Today’s the day. I’m very pleased to introduce Cresta Velia’s fourth release: 2014 Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon from Eagle Summit Vineyard. This lithe and energetic vintage drinks like a true mountain wine… smart and sophisticated, with a rustic wild side.

Juicy blackberry, plum, and cherry meet savory black fruit compote, peppermint, and toasty spice.  Fruit, acidity, and tannin are all nicely integrated and promise a long, delicious future. At the same time, there’s no need to wait—it’s opening up beautifully now with just a little time in the glass.  I’m really proud of this release, and think it’s one you can enjoy now or cellar for decades.

You can pick some up on our website, starting today.  All orders will ship on March 6, 2017, weather permitting. 


Happy drinking!


John Giannini
