2019 Calistoga Cabernet Sauvignon
“If you’re headed to a family dinner, Baldacci should be the choice of wine to take. The bottle is beautiful with a detailed gold embossed crest. An amazing balance of acidity and fruit…” – Medium, “7 Classy Gifts Your Recipient Will Love this Holiday”

2019 Fraternity Red Blend
“We’re partial to the red blend but any wines from Baldacci Family Vineyards out of Napa Valley make amazing gifts.” – Life & Style, The Ultimate 2022 Gift Guide for Holidays, Birthdays and Beyond

2019 Brenda’s Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon (Membership Exclusive)
“Every so often a wine comes along that stands out head and shoulders above the rest. This is just such a wine which finds its way into rare company, and, from beginning to end, it is among the finest Cabernet Sauvignons we have encountered over the years…” – Connoisseur’s Guide
97 Points, Robert Parker Wine Advocate



For the Serious Collector: 2019 Appellation Collection

As featured in Forbes, the wines in this collection are “among the most elegant and supple of all from Napa.”

Among the collection is our 2019 Black Label Cabernet Sauvignon, praised by Forbes’ Tom Hyland as having “a layered mid-palate and a finish with great persistence; the tannins are quite rich, yet silky, and the wine finishes with notes of dark chocolate and a note of graphite.”
