Winemaker's Notes

From vineyards planted high up on Spring Mountain, this boutique winery is making some of the most unique and delicious wines in Napa. If you're a fan of Pride Cabernet, try a bottle of this elixer.

1999 was a fantastic growing year, in which careful viticultural techniques yielded great rewards. A late harvest enabled a long hang time, which allowed the fruit to develop extremely complex flavors and aromas. The color is deep and inky. The nose is intensely layered, led by blackberry, currant, pomegranate, and plum. Subtle layers of tar, smoke, cigar box/cedar, and well-integrated oak further complement the aroma. Careful tannin management has blessed this wine with a full and velvety structure. The sweet supple entry crescendos into a deeply intense middle. The fruit characters from the nose fill the mouth as the tannins build and combine to create a lingering finish.

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,...
