St Helena 2019: the top Cabernets from this Napa AVA

At the waistline of the Napa Valley, where the Mayacamas and Vaca mountain ranges are at their closest point, the St Helena AVA features some of the region's oldest and most recognisable names. Decanter's Napa correspondent Jonathan Cristaldi picks out the best performers in 2019.

Situated at the narrowest point in the Napa Valley hourglass, the St Helena AVA tends to be warmer with less wind flow – and in 2019 seems to have benefited from the wet winter and cooler spring.
