The Vineyard and Winemaking – Located in the Oak Knoll District of Napa Valley, the well-drained sandy and gravelly soils of our estate vineyard, in partnership with moderate temperatures, yield the great flavor intensity, yet supple mouth-feel of our Cabernet Sauvignon. The tremendous depth and complexity of our Cabernet is further enhanced by the four carefully selected Cabernet clones planted here.

 

Each block was hand-harvested into small boxes at daybreak and carefully sorted at the winery. Our winemaker allowed four days of cold soak, for a gentle extraction of color and flavor, followed by warm fermentation. Several weeks of extended maceration increased flavor intensity and rounded the tannins. Malolactic fermentation and aging in French oak further enhanced the length, depth and complexity, culminating in a well-integrated, cellar-worthy wine with a velvety texture.

Tasting – Inviting aromas of black currant, black cherries, savory spices and a hint of tobacco.  On the palate, dark berries and crème de cassis continue through to the long, satisfying finish. The firm, polished tannins promise even greater complexity with age. Enjoy!
