In 2009, “Y by YOSHIKI” was born as a collaborative project by renowned Japanese artist YOSHIKI and Napa Valley winemaker and 4th generation vintner, Rob Mondavi Jr. The grapes are sourced from premium vineyards across California and express the artistry, quality and creativity of this unique partnership.
This California series is described by YOSHIKI as “smart casual” that is not only for wine lovers but also fits in with your everyday lifestyle.
The California drought was positive for the grapes as the berries were small providing great concentration of flavor and intensity of the wines. The aromas are classic for California Cabernet Sauvignon bursting with wonderful ripe vine fruits, pomegranate and honey comb this is true pleasure to enjoy. The flavors are of fresh dark blackberry, cassis and generous caramel from the influence of both French and American oak. The wine’s texture is velvety and smooth with a lovely balance of tannin, fruit and freshness providing perfect balance.
