Cult 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon
THE WINERY:Cult is handcrafted by two Napa Valley born and raised wine veterans, Rich Salvestrin and Scott Lloyd. Salvestrin is not only a third generation grape grower, but after obtaining a degree in Viticulture from Fresno State transformed the family business into his namesake St Helena winery. Salvestrin garners exceptional reviews for their handcrafted estate grown wines and sits predominately on Highway 29. General Manager Scott Lloyd holds a MBA in wine from Sonoma State University and has spent a career growing brands for select boutique wineries. This includes Frank Family Vineyards for which he cultivated a trade market and established the winery as a highly-recognized label.
THE WINE: Cult is a structured and balanced Cabernet Sauvignon from three prestigious California wine regions — each lending their own unique characteristics — to provide a Cabernet that is sure to create a following. We believe a handcrafted Cabernet should be cultivated through terroir knowledge, blending expertise and barrel selection. Cult was developed for wine merchants and restaurateurs to provide their customers with a fantastic Cabernet at a fair price.
