Winemaking

Our Napa Cabernet receives choice lots from our Estate Vineyard located in the hills high above the town of St. Helena, as well as fruit from other top Napa vineyards, including Stagecoach and Salvador. The fruit was hand-picked and triple sorted before undergoing extended maceration and a long, cool fermentation for increased flavor, color and aroma. The wine was aged for 23 months in 50% new French oak barrels. Our Napa Cabernet bottling is always blended with other Bordeaux varietals for their added aromatic and balanced tannin contributions.

Tasting Notes

This wine is very dark in color with intense aromas of blackberry, cassis, graphite, vanilla and cedar. The palate shows intense notes of boysenberry, plum, blueberry, camphor, smoke, coffee, cedar, and Asian spices. The wine is wound tightly and should be decanted in its youth. With proper cellaring, it will evolve for 10 to 15 years.
