The Judd's Hill Cabernet Sauvignon is a blend of cab, merlot and franc from our own hillside vineyards, as well as cabernet from two of our favorite neighbors: the Howell Mountain vineyard of Clark Claudon and the Rutherford Bench ranch of Julie and Pat Garvey. This is a blend truly made in heaven. It combines the highly structured tannins we have all come to respect from the slopes of Napa Valley with the silkiness of grapes grown on the valley floor...a great cuvee which should mellow into a wine of beautiful finesse.
I would describe the wine as having a moderate-to-full body with medium tannins. The fruit flavors are highly extracted, leaning toward bright black cherries and black raspberries, with overtones of earth and cedar, coupled with nuances of oak.
Alcohol: 13.8% by volume
