Winemaker's Notes

"Being very selective in both the vineyard, and later in the winery, was the key in 1998. Vineyards had to be picked cluster by cluster, not block by block or even vine by vine. I chose to use lots from our St. Helena Home, Chabot and Tre Colline vineyards as the core of the wine because they had the best depth and complexity. The cool vintage and lingering clouds on Howell Mountain during harvest made it a challenging year up there - I didn't get the consistent richness through all lots of Bancroft the way I normally do. As a result, I was brutally selective in the blending process, using only the lots that were really up to Private Reserve quality. Consequently, I made less than half of our 'normal' PR production." -Ed Sbragia, Winemaster

"Exhibits a dense ruby/purple color as well as a moderately intense bouquet of black currants infused with olive, smoke, licorice, and new oak. Supple, medium-bodied, and surprisingly evolved, with sweet fruit on the mid-palate and in the finish, it is a harmonious, charming offering to enjoy over the next 7-8 years." -Robert M. Parker, Jr., The Wine Advocate December 23, 2000"

The area was settled by a few choice wine families in the 1960's who bet that the wines of the area would grow and flourish. They were right. The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon

(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes. Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity. Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...
