Clif Family Winery 2008 ‘Kit’s Killer Cab’, Napa Valley, CA
From the team behind Clif Bar and LUNA comes this “killer” Cabernet Sauvignon. Very well balanced and with great structure, this wine exemplifies all that a great Napa Valley Cabernet should be. Black fruits, baked red fruit and leather aromas tantalize the nose while flavors of plum, baked cherries, licorice, vanilla and savory hints of autumnal pungency inundate the palate. It is apparent from the first sip that the winemakers are passionate and diligent in their pursuit of creating a grand wine that will excite and charm even the most demanding of drinkers.
78% Cabernet Sauvignon
6% Cabernet Franc

She has also worked as the winemaker at Quintessa and currently works at Joel Gott Wines with her husband, while also consulting for several Napa Valley wineries. Her partnership with Bruce Regalia for this 2008 Kit’s Killer Cab was a fortunate meeting of creative minds that developed this elegant and charming wine.
