Vibrant and inky dark, the 2017 Gandona is densely packed with rich and expressive notes of blackberries and cream, violets, red licorice and saddle leather. It is substantial and expansive in structure, opening far and wide across the palate, building gently but firmly. Supple and mouth-coating tannins merge seamlessly with detailed layers of cocoa nib, black cherries, candied orange peel and baking spices. As the wine progresses, the more sanguine qualities of crushed rock and graphite typical of this mountain site emerge beneath the fruit, intensifying and furthering the miles-long finish.

Whether for a warm gathering of family or wine loving friends, or as a unique gift for someone special in your life, magnum format wines rise to the occasion! The large bottle, with our beautiful, silk-screened label, makes for a beautiful presentation on your table and serves a larger number of your guests with ease.

Additionally, large format bottles are unique in that the larger size allows the wine to age and mature more slowly over time than standard-sized bottles, making them excellent gifts for someone who is celebrating or commemorating a special event in their lives from that vintage.

About Encosta…
Encosta means “hillside” in Portuguese. While this Cabernet was originally created to showcase the youthful vibrancy of the vines planted by our team when the property was first acquired, it has now become less about more about showcasing the various expressions of our highly dynamic vineyard characteristics and Bordeaux varieties blended together. Both the 2016 and 2017 vintages produced wonderful wines, yet unique, influenced by the percentage of blended varieties to the growing season differences. A special attribute about our Encosta Cabernets is they are very pleasurable in their youth and will certainly evolve beautifully with additional bottle age.

 Gorgeous and refined, the 2018 Meia Cab Franc is an excellent reflection of the nearly perfect 2018 growing season. Pure and detailed, pressed flowers, black cherry pie filling and incense are first to emerge from the glass, with touches of dark chocolate and baking spices developing with time.
Cool, silky, and surprisingly rich, ultra-fine tannins glide across the palate, merging seamlessly with wild berry compote, crushed  rock and cocoa nib. A gentle but pulsing acidity lifts and pushes the wine through a mile-long finish.

 The 2016 Gandona Estate is aromatic and expressive with ripe blueberries, blackberry compote, violets, and cocoa nib taking center stage, underlain by notes of sweet earth, crushed rocks, and cigar box. With a dense and concentrated structure, it makes an impressive entrance, driving straight to the top with a pulsating acidity that elevates the fruit and holds its position front and center. Polished tannins build and round with time. The 2016 Gandona exudes power and finesse while still being light on its feet. The lengthy, mineral finish is a grand finale that is deserving of a standing ovation.

 The 2016 Encosta launches with an intense nose of black cherries, Framboise liqueur, and cherry blossoms. The aromatics continue to elevate with fragrant notes of strawberry preserves, violet crumble, orange zest and forest floor. Persistent and exuberant, the silky texture glides across the palate while the mouth-watering acidity builds and carries the brightness and elegance through the lengthy, flourishing finish. Remarkably integrated, the tannins are in attendance without being assertive. Reflective of the vineyard and resplendent growing season, this is a highly finessed wine that will continue to reveal itself with age.

The skins of the Touriga Nacional grape are thick and richly colored. The aromatics of ripe black currants, raspberries and complex hints of herbs and licorice entice, while intense flavors of floral and dark ripe fruits seduce the palate.
Aptly named Fraga do Arco, the character of this traditional port-style wine from Gandona Estate reflects the artistry of its team and the land from which it comes.

 “Living up to the potential predicted last year, the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is fabulous. One hundred percent Cabernet Sauvignon aged 22 months in 80% new French oak, there are 500 cases of this terrific wine. With its inky purple color, a glorious nose of blackberry and blueberry liqueur, full-bodied mouthfeel, dense, pure notes interwoven with camphor, charcoal embers and spring flowers, this is stunning stuff and a great example of the Estate’s potential. Drink now-2025+.”

 The 2011 Gandona is a highly concentrated dark purple hue, atypical of many 2011 Napa Cabernets. Initially the wine offers aromas and flavors of ripe blackberry, sweet boysenberry and black cherry fruits, with floral elements of violets and dried rose petals, all framed by a red rock minerality. The wine displays secondary aromatics of sage and anise, with hints of vanilla and cocoa. The structure is dry and full bodied with moderate plus tannins, pronounced acidity, and a rich mouth filling viscosity. The 2011 is impressive now and will show at its peak from 2015 to 2020, and cellar well another 10 years.
