Tasting Notes

WA95+

Levy and McClellan`s 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon, which spent 26 months in new oak (mostly Taransaud), is developing at an incredibly slow rate. Its opaque ruby/purple color is accompanied by beautiful aromas of roasted coffee, melted chocolate, creme de cassis, burning embers, camphor, and a hint of cedar. On the palate, the wine combines considerable substance, power, and extract with a sense of harmony as well as elegance. Black currant, blackberry, and gamy, meaty notes are also present in this full-bodied effort with an incredibly long finish. The wine is just beginning to shed some tannin and become accessible. It will benefit from another 4-5 years of bottle age, and will easily last for three decades or more.

The Winery

Levy & McClellan

Bob Levy, long-time winemaker at Harlan Estate, and his wife, Martha McClellan, who has done incredible consulting work at such top-flight wineries as Sloan and Blankiet, have their own small project whose results to date have been magnificent wines. Although expensive, no one will complain about the quality in the bottle as they are clearly Napa Valley first-growths.
-Robert Parker

Founded in 1999 by husband and wife duo, Bob Levy and Martha McClellan, Levy & McClellan is a collaborative effort that showcases wine of uncompromised quality and expression of their origin. Their portfolio releases among the highest priced red blends in Napa Valley, and each year the prices increase further. Levy & McClellan is entirely allocated, so the wines tend to be extremely difficult to find.
