These Arador releases are made by Roberto Alfaro, who trained under Sam Kaplan. 2021 Cabernet Sauvignon, a beautiful wine as well as a brilliant value in impeccably made Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. Ripe black fruits, spring flowers, graphite, and tobacco all emerge from the glass, and it hits the palate with medium to full-bodied richness and depth, fine tannins, and outstanding length. A blend of Coombsville and Oakville fruit aged 22 months in French oak, drink this beauty over the coming 15+ years.

Fermented with a splash of stems and aged 22 months in barrel, the 2021 Syrah reveals a fabulous perfume of cured meats, leather, game, and spicy dark fruits. It's medium to full-bodied, has a rounded, mouth-filling texture, beautiful tannins, and a great finish. This is impeccably made, and the stems are also perfectly integrated into the wine. It's drinking beautifully today, yet there's no reason it shouldn't evolve for a decade.
