If we could name the winery that made this premium Cabernet, it'd be out the door in a flash. But we can't - that was the proviso for bagging the wine at such a great price. It’s from Rutherford, one of the finest wine-growing areas in Napa Valley. Known for world-class Cabernet, the region soaks up the warm Californian sunshine during the day, ripening the grapes, until the fog rolls in come evening. It lengthens the growing season and results in intense, deeply flavoured, bold, well-structured reds. Illustrious bears all the hallmarks of a great Napa Valley wine – dense blackcurrant, mint, and chocolate notes from 20 months in French oak, all underpinned by a mineral earthiness, known as 'Rutherford dust'. The perfect mate for steak.

"A super Napa Cab. Packed with rich fruits and complexity. Decant for an hour, savour every second" Kristina Spencer
