Winemaker's Notes

This is a bottling of 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from the vineyard at the highest elevation on our Conn Valley property. Planted by Dave Abreu in 1996 on a steep, south - facing slope at the north end of our ranch, this parcel has given us remarkable Cabernet Sauvignon fruit, both complex and dramatic. The soil is basalt mixed with gravel and clay-loam, and the vines are a low - yielding selection of Cabernet Sauvignon from an old property in Rutherford. The name is a tribute to our three children, Alexandra, Michael and Elizabeth. In French, it means 'soul'.

Critical Acclaim

"A classy style that’s tight, dense, rich and layered, with loads of dark berry, cedar, tobacco leaf, sage and crushed rock. Intense yet impeccably balanced. Firms nicely on the finish, where the tannins give the flavors traction. Drink now through 2022."

The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...

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,...
