2017 Teeter-Totter Cabernet Sauvignon by Fait-Main | Napa Valley California 750ml

I worked hard, learned from everyone, and pushed myself to deliver the kind of winemaking I believe in. | Benoit Touquette, Fait-Main

Another terrific value, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon is 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, 5% each Petite Sirah and Zinfandel. Production is way down due to the fires, but it's a smoking wine with its bright, juicy blackberry and cassis fruit interwoven with plenty of graphite and toasted spice. Rich, meduim to full-bodied, and sweetly fruited, it has ripe tannins and is well worth seeking out. | 95 points, Jeb Dunnuck for jebdunnuck.com

While this side of Benoit Touquette comes off as so serious, there really is a playful side to his winemaking and we have discovered that in his Teeter-Totter wines. With a sampling of both vineyards and varietals from across the Napa Valley including Calistoga, St. Helena, Pritchard Hill, and Yountville, we get a fun-loving red blend based on Cabernet Sauvignon with some added personality from Merlot, Syrah, Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, Petit Verdot, Malbec, and Cabernet Franc. Everyone is coming out to play - the blackberry, raspberry, and black plum are plump and juicy contrasting nicely with the smells of summer in dried lavender, fresh thyme, and violets. With the balanced touch of 50% new French oak, the texture is lithe and inviting. | Falling Bright
