Racy, rich and nuanced, the 2011 offers excellent immediacy and plenty of up-front fruit. Given its mid-weight personality, the 2011 will drink well right out of the gate. Sweet floral notes, red berries and mint linger on the perfumed finish. Today the 2011 impresses for its persistence and overall sense of harmony. The 2011 is 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Petit Verdot and 8% Merlot, fairly typical in a year in which Cabernet is lower than normal in blends.

The Entre Nous Estate cuvee displays its Cabernet base with rich cassis, pleasant wood spice, tobacco and a thread of savory aromatics.

The Entre Nous Estate cuvee displays its Cabernet base with rich cassis, pleasant wood spice, tobacco and a thread of savory aromatics. The Petit Verdot shines on the palate bringing floral notes and plump, ripe berry flavors to the mix. Fairly rich, mouth filling and hinting towards elegance, this is an extremely fine showing for the vintage. Approachable now, but should reward amply over the next 5-10 years.

Label

This modern wine is crafted the old-fashioned way—completely by hand. The journey starts in the Entre Nous estate vineyard, where they meticulously micro-farm one-acre blocks of Cabernet entirely by hand. The human connection through harvest, sorting, and de-stemming ensures that only the finest fruit proceeds to fermentation, and personal monitoring throughout the aging and blending process fosters the ultimate expression of both vineyard and vintage. The structured finesse and graceful balance of every element mark the resulting wine as the work of a master craftsman.

Winery

Kristine Ashe Vineyards

Entre Nous Wines is a small family winery in the heart of Napa Valley dedicated to exquisite, hand-crafted estate wines. “Entre Nous” means “between us,” and that’s how the winery works-on the fundamental belief of deriving the strength and soul of a wine through bonds and connections formed, bringing people together. It was established by Kristine Ashe who purchased her Oakville estate in 2000 and hired David Abreu as vineyard architect.

The 26-acre, organically farmed estate is planted to the classic Bordeaux varietals: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec, Petit Verdot and Sauvignon Blanc. It is painstakingly managed and micro-farmed in one-acre plots to promote optimal health of the soil and vines, creating near-perfect ripening and fruit of incredible quality. Night harvesting, manual de-stemming and barrel fermentation are a few of the traditional techniques the winery uses to unlock diverse aromatics, complex flavors and a purity of fruit that cannot be achieved by mechanical methods.
