1221 Cabernet Cuvee

The 1221 Cabernet Sauvignon is harvested from small lots of Cabernet Sauvignon and aged to perfection for 1 to 2 years in American and French Oak. The resultant wine is decidedly decadent and robust. The flavors carry the black fruits along with an ample amount of black currants, coffee, and a dusting of black pepper. The toasty oak is well integrated in this full-bodied wine. Overall this wine has been described as a very ‘Cabernet-style’ Cabernet; quite delicious, silky and lush.

Protest

The bald eagle has always stood as a symbol of longevity and great strength. Majestic and unwavering, the bald eagle is able to command attention with a single glance. Our brother, Craig Manning, was an Eagle. Like the Eagle he was gentle in nature but mighty when he had to be, and others in his presence couldn’t help but be drawn to him. He would vouch for the weak, standing up for what was right at all costs. Drawing from these qualities as inspiration, we came up with our Protest Red Wine blend, which finished aging in craft rye whiskey barrels for 45 days. This wine provides aromas and flavors that will challenge your senses, and much like our brother who is gone but never forgotten and the tenacious Bald Eagle, this wine will stand the test of time.

Zombie Zinfandel

The Zombie Zinfandel is blood-red in color. The aromas evoke visions of ripe blackberries and cedar coffins. The flavors meld together as an oozy mass of dark, ripe and horridly rich fruit with a layer of black pepper and spice.

Dusty Red Blend

VINTAGE: 2012

Composed primarily of Merlot harvested from Gargiulo Vineyards in Oakville and Cabernet Franc harvested from Carpenter Vineyards in Saint Helena, the 2012 Dusty Red is a deliciously bold, yet balanced wine. Dark garnet red, offering generous aromas of toasted oak, baking spice, dark fruits, and hints of vanilla bean. The body is large and round, packed full of juicy blackberry, red plum, smoked bacon, chalky chocolate and layered spice. A medium-long finish is supported by ample tannins.  Each varietal was individually fermented and aged, then drawn from barrels and blended prior to bottling.

  • VARIETAL COMPOSITION: 37% Merlot, 31% Cabernet Franc, 26% Syrah, 3% Petit Verdot

    ALCOHOL: 14.6 Percent

    OAK PROGRAM: 24 months in French oak

Merlot – Money Road Vineyard

VINTAGE: 2013

Made with Merlot grapes grown in the gravelly soils that brought to life some of Napa’s first 100 point Cabernets, the 2013 vintage, harvested from Money Road Vineyard in the heart of Oakville, is truely a beauty (and quite possibly our favorite vintage yet).

If there was ever a time to use delicate and rich in the same sentence, this would be it. Rich, delicate and ripe with firm tanins, a nose of spicy fruits and vanilla bean give way to a body packed full of grilled plum, blackberry, blueberry and subtle herbal undertones. There is a tantalizing smokiness to this wine and a kiss of spice that prolong its fruit-filled finish. Drink now or hide it away, as it will certainly holdup into the next decade.

The Zombie Zinfandel is blood-red in color. The aromas evoke visions of ripe blackberries and cedar coffins. The flavors meld together as an oozy mass of dark, ripe and horridly rich fruit with a layer of black pepper and spice.

Cabernet Sauvignon

Our Reserve Cabernet is composed primarily of fruit hand-picked from a single block in our Centa Vineyard; the best fruit we have to offer. Intense summer heat and obsidian rich soils result in small, dense clusters of grapes bursting with complex flavor and tannin.

Spending nearly three years in French oak, this wine is not for the faint of heart. Dense, concentrated, and inky purple on the verge of black in the glass. Clove, cinnamon, saddle leather and heaps of vanilla on the nose with a body to match. Juicy

dark cherry, blackberry and black plum are layered over smoked meats, graphite, mocha, and a touch of dark cocoa powder. Soft sizable tannins are present throughout, bringing structure to the complex flavors and driving a seemingly endless finish.

Cabernet Franc

As one the of the four Bordeaux wines used in blending into Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc is known for its aromatic qualities of floral violet, rich blueberry, and dark plum. Luscious deep red and burgundy purple in color, the immediate aromatics of this Cabernet Franc are of deep dark cherry, anise, and plum.

Aging for 18 months in select French oak barrels gives the wine delicate cedar cigar box aromas. Soft velvety tannins add to the mouthfeel, while plum, raspberry, mushroom and black pepper come together in a classic expression of Bordeaux varietal fruit. Beautiful and youthful, this wine has the tannins and acidity to age well for 6-8 years in the cellar.

Russian River Valley Chardonnay

VINTAGE: 2014

At Gibbs we focus on making quality Napa Valley wines, but from time to time we come across an opportunity we just can’t pass up. So is the case with this beautiful Chardonnay from the world-famous Bacigalupi Vineyard in the Russian River Valley. The wines we make from vineyards outside of the Napa Valley are small batch and limited release, so make sure to grab them while you can!

Gibbs 2014 Russian River Chardonnay was sourced from the Bacigalupi Vineyard. Barrel fermented in 60% new French oak and stirred on the lees, this is a beautiful Burgundian style Chardonnay. Aromas of honey suckle, vanilla and a hint of oak give way to a round, luscious body of melon, peach, apricot, and pear. Juicy fruit flavors are balanced by a bright acidity that shows in the body and makes for a clean finish with a hint of crisp green apple and lemon zest.

Saint Helena Sauvignon Blanc

Made with 100% Sauvignon Blanc harvested from Centa Vineyard, one of Gibbs’ two estate vineyards in Saint Helena. The fruit comes from vines grown near the banks of the Napa River, where relatively cool summer temperatures help retain a balance of flavor and acidity. After fermentation the wine is brought to tank for 7 months before bottling.

The 2016 Centa Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc is light bodied with crisp acidity and an elegantly long finish. A nose full of tropical fruits, lemon peel and citrus gives way to a light, but immensely flavorful body bursting with mouthwatering green apple, pear and lychee notes. Enjoy!

Three Clones Cabernet Sauvignon

VINTAGE: 2014

The Gibbs 2014 Three Clones Cabernet Sauvignon is the result of a superb growing year in Napa Valley. Consistently warm weather with few heat spikes and little threat of rain during harvest allowed us to pick at optimal ripeness to balance tannins, sugar levels, and flavor.

Three Clones Cabernet Sauvignon owes its name to the three Cabernet clones grown on the estate, 6 | 15 | 337, that create the base for this delicious wine. Each clone adds unique character and complexity to the blend.

Upon opening, you are greeted by mouthwatering aromas of ripe black cherries and the tantalizing dusty smell of french oak. A delicious, textured mid-palate of plum and dark fruits sprinkled with black pepper meets soft, sizable tannins for a smooth and silky finish.
