Winery Notes:
Vineyard 29’s Aida Estate Vineyard is located 2 miles north of the 29 Estate vineyard on Highway 29. It is a historic property that has produced wine since the 1920s when Petite Sirah vines were first planted at this site. In 2001, Chuck and Anne acquired Aida as an ideal complement to Vineyard 29’s home vines. An upgrade of the vineyard was immediately undertaken with several vine blocks being replanted. Cabernet sauvignon now serves as the backbone for our Aida Estate vineyard; however the old zinfandel vines are still a key part of Vineyard 29’s portfolio providing fruit for our Aida Estate Zinfandel and our Aida Estate Late Harvest Zinfandel.


Ratings & Reviews

98 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The deep purple-black colored 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Aida Estate Vineyard comes strutting out of the glass like a total rock star, giving up flamboyant notes of warm cassis, blueberry compote and preserved plums with exciting sparks of kirsch, red roses, oolong tea, star anise and cigar box plus a touch of underbrush. Full-bodied, rich, bold and wonderfully decadent in the mouth, it fills the palate with black fruit preserves and red berry layers, supported by a firm, grainy line and finishing very long." - Lisa Perrotti-Brown (29th Oct 2018)

96 Points - Antonio Galloni's Vinous:
"A powerful, explosive wine, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Aida Estate possesses tremendous intensity in all of its dimensions. Super-ripe black cherry, plum, bittersweet chocolate, scorched earth, leather, licorice and menthol all run through this potent, inky Cabernet Sauvignon. The tannins are present and quite potent, but also very nicely integrated. The Aida is mostly Clone 337 Cabernet, with dollops of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot." - Antonio Galloni (Dec 2018)

95+ Points - Jeb Dunnuck:
"Brought up in slightly less new oak, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Aida Estate is all from vines in St. Helena. It offers a blacker fruited, mineral-laced, structured style as well as plenty of chocolate, plums, graphite, and earth. This beauty is concentrated and stacked on the palate and presents a much more masculine style compared to the Estate release. Hide bottles for 3-4 years and it should be very long-lived." - Jeb Dunnuck (1/31/2019)

92 Points - James Suckling:
"This has attractive, smoky nuances, as well as a very ripe and plush, dark-berry core. The palate is assertively delivered with an impressively rich array of lithe, juicy tannins. Terrific drive and concentration. Drink or hold." - (November 19, 2018)
