Winemaker's Notes

Our Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon is created from the finest lots of each vintage from our Napa Valley vineyards, each with varied growing conditions, in American's finest wine region. Selected for their intensity of flavor and varietal concentration, the individual lots are kept separate and then blended before barrel aging. The goal is to craft a wine that symbolizes the integrity and quality of our winery. Dark ruby in color with aromas of sweet toasty oak, elegant black plum and briar fruit layered with cinnamon, nutmeg, cocoa and cedar. The flavors are well balanced, with toasty vanilla oak followed by a soft tannin finish, an elegance of structure that will cellar well. A perfect wine for roast beef dishes and savory cheeses.
