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 19 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

Fresh berries are prominent on the nose: cherry, blueberry, raspberry. Vanilla, cinnamon, camphor, and mint add depth and complexity, and captivating aromas. The palate features vibrant acidity and an overall sense of balance that is often lacking in your typical high-octane Napa Cabernet. With proper cellaring, it will evolve for 10 to 15 years.
