Nenow Nenow!

No matter what planet you're from, this wine is amazing.

You know how everyone thinks Robin Williams was so crazy because he used to do coke? Not true. He was such a screw ball because he was lucky enough to have found his one true love very early on ... the Robert Nenow Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. It's like the Tom Cruise jumping on the couch thing, only with wine!

Robin Williams wasn't high on drugs, he was high on life! A life filled with bright aromas of ripe blackberry, raspberry, black currants, coffee and tobacco leaf and a rich mid-palate of black cherry pie, plum and dusty cocoa.

Some of you might be thinking right now, "No. I'm pretty sure it was coke." But if you really think about it, it all starts falling into place. His catchphrase on Mork & Mindy wasn't "Nanoo Nanoo." It was "Nenow Nenow." I know, RIGHT?!

Features

2006 Robert Nenow Winery Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley 750ml 3-Pack

Dark ruby in color with bright aromas of ripe blackberry, raspberry, black currants, coffee and tobacco leaf. A rich mid-palate of black cherry pie, plum, dusty cocoa and well-balanced acid that continue to the long finish. Well structured, this wine continues to impress as it opens up in the glass and will continue to improve with time in the cellar.

Robert Nenow
Founded:

Location:
Napa, CA

A member of the Behrens Family of fine winemakers

My wife, Lori, and I have had a love of fine wines for years, and we are fortunate to have two excellent Napa Valley winemakers in the family: Lori's sister, Lisa Drinkward of Drinkward Peschon, and brother-in-law Les Behrens of Behrens Family Winery (formerly Behrens & Hitchcock). For many years I have helped Lisa and Les with crush at their beautiful Napa Valley winery at the top of Spring Mountain. Spending much of my vacation time each year, I gained hands-on knowledge of how these fine wines are made. In 2003 Les suggested that we take some of the wonderful Cabernet Sauvignon fruit from the Kenefick Ranch near Calistoga and try making our own wine. Using the skills I had learned from these highly praised winemakers, we crafted our first vintage of Nenow wines. This connection has helped us foster relationships with wonderful vineyard owners, allowing us to choose the fruit for our wine based on quality and sustainable farming practices.
 
From that first bottling of 224 cases of Nenow Napa Valley Kenefick Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon we have grown and added a second label called El Camino Real, inspired by the historical trail that spanned California from San Diego to the town of Sonoma. Each year I return to the Napa Valley along a similar route to harvest, crush, monitor fermentation, do punch downs by hand several time a day, press the wine off the skins and put it into French oak barrels for aging. For much of the year I rely on Lisa and Les to care for the wines as they do their own, with care and expertise, returning return as often as I can until the wine is bottled.
