Deep ruby in color. Our Napa Cabernet leads with the grape’s signature richness and classic blackberry, cassis, and graphite notes. This full-bodied Cabernet delivers satiny layers of blueberry and blackberry fruits, segueing to more savory earth, crushed stones, fresh cedar, and sagebrush. Firm tannins provide textural grip, and the wine builds with energy and tension, leading to a long finish punctuated by elegant baking spices.
Arriving in small picking lugs from the vineyards, the clusters were hand sorted, de-stemmed and hand sorted again, berry-by-berry. A two-day cold soak was followed by primary fermentation in small, open-top stainless steel tanks. Following an extended maceration, the fruit was gently pressed and the wine moved to barrel for secondary fermentation. The wine was aged for 19 months in rare 100% New French Artisan Oak barrels with minimal racking. Multiple, blending trials, determined the final blend, which was bottled unfined and unfiltered.
