Winemaker's Notes:

Cappella is a proprietary blend of two clones of Cabernet Sauvignon with Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Merlot. The gravelly soil at Cappella produces fruit that is very elegant in structure. The resulting wine exhibits beautiful purity of fruit with fine grained and lengthy tannins.

About Abreu Vineyard:

David Abreu is a third generation native of the Napa Valley. David grew up in Rutherford, California in a family with farming interests. Starting at an early age, David worked during the summers at Inglenook and Caymus vineyard. As time passed, his interests focused on viticulture and ultimately he began to farm and manage several properties on his own. In 1980 he founded David Abreu Vineyard Management, Inc. That same year he developed the Madrona Ranch vineyard. David produced his first wine in 1986 from the Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc at Madrona Ranch. His first commercial release was with the 1987 Abreu Madrona Ranch.
