Delgadillo Cellars announces the release of its debut wine, 2001 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, aged an unprecedented seven years in barrel and bottle. The wine is released only after developing the nuances and complexity that exemplify a finely matured Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon.

"Napa Valley wineries typically produce, age and sell their Cabernet Sauvignon within two to three years," explains winemaker and founder Ignacio Delgadillo, Sr. "We want to give wine lovers the opportunity to experience the gracefulness and complexity of an aged Napa Cabernet, the way it is meant to be."

Delgadillo Cellars 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon was aged thirty-six months in French oak barrels, followed by over four years in bottle prior to release. Hand-tended by Ignacio Delgadillo, Sr., the 2.5-acre vineyard sits north of St. Helena on the west side of the Napa River. The thirty-year-old vines are dry farmed, yielding robustly flavored grapes with effusive aromatics.

While the history of many Napa Valley wine producers begins with the first bottle of wine, Delgadillo Cellars' history began nearly three decades earlier. Ignacio Delgadillo, Sr. started his career tending the vineyards in 1975. He then went on to produce numerous award-winning wines for Napa Valley's top brands. Seeing the Delgadillo family name on the bottle represents the fulfillment of a lifelong dream for Ignacio Delgadillo, Sr., who now meticulously crafts the wine that bears his name.

He teamed up with eldest son Ignacio Jr. in 2001 to create the family brand. From the outset, the Delgadillos aspired to craft a Cabernet Sauvignon that showcases the expressive fruit and distinctive nuances of a mature wine. Ignacio Jr. notes, "It's the style we enjoy at home, and a style that's not generally available. Now consumers have the opportunity to enjoy a wine with evolved characteristics, something of a rarity in today's wine world."

Available in April 2009, Delgadillo Cellars 2001 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon represents the inaugural release of the Delgadillo family. Matured for over seven years, the wine is handcrafted in limited quantity of 245 cases. The wine is available only from Delgadillo Cellars in St. Helena, CA.
