Winemaker's Notes

The Signature Cabernet Sauvignon has been our flagship wine for more than three decades. It is a benchmark for the long-lived hillside wines of the Napa Valley; full of structure and ageing potential, yet seductively forward in its concentrated varietal character. The dry, rocky soils of Pritchard Hill produce small, intensely flavorful grapes. Crop thinning allows for full, even ripening and elevates flavor complexity.

From its cocoa and coffee layers to its fresh herb notes and voluptuous fruit flavors, this wine displays a balanced and graceful expression of mountain-grown Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine's dark plum and sweet fruit core is supported by vibrant, bright cherry aromatics, well-structured tannins, spicy oak and an earthy minerality.

Critical Acclaim

"Assertive herb, anise, blackberry and wild berry fruit is tight, firm, tannic and well-structured, picking up depth and length on the finish. Best from 2010 through 2016. 7,650 cases made. Online Tasting Highlight April 27, 2009)"
