Our classic Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon reveals aromas of ripe blackberry and boysenberry with hints of dark
chocolate and sweet oak. On the palate, the dark fruit is balanced by fresh acidity and lush tannins that carry all the
way over a lingering, elegant finish—with just a kiss of minerality. Enjoy this wine now, with everything from lamb
burgers to filet mignon and fire-roasted portabello mushrooms—or lay the wine down and watch it continue to
develop complexity in the bottle for years to come.

83% Cabernet Sauvignon; 9% Merlot; 4% Petite Verdot; 4% Cabernet Franc ABV 14.6%

The Vintage

After several years of drought, we were happy to see ample rainfall in Napa Valley during the winter of 2017. Cool spring weather gave us ideal conditions for flowering and “berry set”—when each tiny flower turns into a young grape. Temperatures were moderate through the summer, for slow, even ripening, then turned warmer during harvest, which sped things up and delivered small clusters with tremendous varietal flavor concentration and balanced acidity.

Vineyards

Napa Valley is known the world over for fine cabernet sauvignon. Vineyards here are blessed with a great diversity of soils and microclimates and express their distinct personalities through remarkable wines. We blend our Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon from special spots throughout the region, including the renowned cab appellations of Rutherford and Oakville, which impart classic Napa Valley bold fruit intensity, as well as the warmer Calistoga area to the north and the cooler southern reaches of the Suscol watershed, which contribute layers of complexity and depth of flavor. On volcanic rocky hillsides, grapes undergo a beneficial struggle that results in intense fruit, firm tannins, and distinctive minerality, while in the deep, well-drained soils of the valley floor, grapes develop ripe blackfruit concentration, balanced acidity, and supple tannins.

Winemaking

We harvested grapes during the cool night hours to ensure the fruit retained freshness, purity, and natural acidity. Clusters were hand-sorted and destemmed, then whole berries were also hand-sorted. Partial crush gave us optimum extraction of color, flavor, and tannin from the grapeskins. Prior to fermentation, grapes underwent a “cold soak,” which softens the grapeskins and further helps extract color and tannin. Following fermentation the wine was transferred to barrels for malolactic fermentation. The wine aged in French oak barrels (56% new) for 17 months, then our winemaker blended the diverse components to add layers of complexity to the concentrated, classic Napa Valley tapestry of flavors.
