Winemaker's Notes

Winter rainfall came mostly in late January through early March at about 60% of historical average. Bud-break began in mid-March. The vineyard successfully survived some frost in March and April. Several heat spikes occurred in May, June, and July, followed by cooling trends that allowed for promising development of fruit. Harvest was well paced and spread out over a long period, allowing us to selectively pick at optimum ripeness.

Dark ruby color. Enticing aromas of black currant, blackberry, blueberry, walnut, cedar, and vanilla. Full, plush and balanced flavors from start to finish of blueberry, black cherry, and cassis, with hints of dark chocolate. Modest integrated tannins lead to a crisp finish.

Critical Acclaim

"Lovely opaque purple-garnet hue. Scents of berries, cassis, chocolate and dust. Complex spice flavors with fruit to match. Crisp finish. Lots of food-friendly tannins to make this wine great now or later."
92 Points

"A sleek, polished style, with a trim band of sour cherry, red currant, fresh earth, plum and clean, new leather, it tightens up a bit on the finish, but the acidity, tannins and fruit are well-balanced. Drink now through 2012."

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,...
