The wine was hand-harvested in early October and then aged for 10 months in 50% American and 50% French oak with a minimum of 1 month in bottle before release.

How great is it to find a nice Napa wine without the Napa price! Drinks similar to a wonderful Paso Robles, especially if you are looking for a nice jammy Cabernet. Rated 4.1 on Vivino! Definitely a super deal!

“We’ve had our eye on a Napa Valley Cabernet for some time now,” stated Don Opici, managing director of Opici Wines. “There is still strong growth being shown in this category in the US market and we felt that The Critic was a great opportunity for us to enter this universe. Not only is the wine a tremendous value, but the packaging is sleek and stands out on the shelf. We are very excited about the potential this new brand poses for our company.”
