The Story

From  carefully  selected  vineyards,  produced  in  very  small  quantities  and  artfully  crafted  to  reflect  a  sense  of  place,  Dakota  Shy wines  are  a  testament  to  Napa  Valley's  reputation  for  producing  the  greatest  Cabernet  Sauvignon-­‐based  wines  in  the  world. Our  first  Cabernet  Sauvignon  from  the  spectacular  2013  vintage,  the  2013  Dakota  Shy  ‘Napa   Valley’  Cabernet  Sauvignon  is  a  masterful  blend  from  three  exceptional  vineyards.  This  wine  shows  the  finesse  and  concentration  that  is  the  benchmark  for  Dakota   Shy.

Written Notes

Good looking normal size bottle, is in a perfect condition and has by the neck level. Colour is ruby red, and looking healthy and medium. On the nose it is wide, youthful, refined and seductive. The taste is vigor, fragrant, refined, full-bodied, with balanced, well-structured and concentrated structure. The finish is long, extensive, pure and spicy. This wine is exotic and outstanding. Perfectly stored bottles are still very worthy and will last well for another 10-15 years and decant at least over 4h before tasting.
