RP98 "These proprietary reds are dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon, and the 2007 is the finest wine yet produced at Futo. A blend of 61% Cabernet Sauvignon, a whopping 33% Cabernet Franc, and 6% Petit Verdot, it boasts a dense purple color as well as a gorgeously sweet bouquet of blue and black fruits, spring flowers, and crushed rocks, full-bodied power allied to compelling elegance, and a layered, multidimensional personality. There is plenty of depth in this beauty, and it is no doubt capable of putting on lots of weight and complexity given the Cabernet Franc component. Give it 3-4 years of cellaring, and drink it over the following 20-25 years." RP Dec 2009
Futo, Red, Napa Valley
Just a stone’s throw down the hill from the Harlan Estate vineyard is a five-acre parcel of hillside vineyards, planted with 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Merlot and Cabernet Franc, owned by Tom and Kyle Futo. This small 12-acre vineyard on the western hillsides of Oakville has hit the ground running. Their debut release, 2004, has been followed by impressive wines in every subsequent vintage. Proprietor Tom Futo and winemaker Mark Aubert have quickly produced a thrilling group of wines. Sadly, only about 500 cases are produced currently, but the quantity should rise to 1,000 cases after the vineyard comes into full production.
