Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve Napa Valley

Sourced from high-level connections from the best-performing appellations in the Napa Valley every vintage, our Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve is crafted to be a balanced, concentrated example of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. It’s made to lead with its opulent black fruit, and hold its own with much more expensive examples, drinking well on release and up to 5-8 years after the vintage.

“…It tastes as though it costs three times the price . . .

Royal Prince Cabernet Sauvignon has a rocking nose of blackcurrants, chocolate, tobacco leaf, and cedar pencil, with a touch of rocky minerality and graphite showing with time in the glass. Not your simple, value-priced fruit bomb, it has considerable depth of fruit, building tannins, and a great finish…. Hats off to winemaker Maayan Koschitzky for over-delivering on all these wines from Royal Prince.”

Maayan’s role as Director of Winemaking for Atelier Melka finds him making the rounds in the vineyards of nearly every AVA in Napa and Sonoma Counties, from the pop of the first Pinot Noir bud in Russian River Valley all the way through the season until the last Cabernet Sauvignon berry is picked on Howell Mountain.

What this means is that he has a running list in his mind of the best-performing AVAs in the North Coast, even before harvest begins. In this way Maayan can focus his energies on the very best-performing sites and “sweet spots” when choosing fruit and wines to buy for the Royal Prince label.
