Winemaker's Notes:

Our premier wine from this luscious location is Cabernet Sauvignon. Barreled in 100% French Oak, it has a 15.3% alcohol content. Powerful, yet ever-so smooth, it begins with a brisk awakening, continues with sophisticated complexity, and finishes with unforgettable strength.
My Notes:

About Bialla:

Perched 1700 feet above the Napa Valley in the Atlas Peak Appellation, this boutique winery enjoys exquisite terroir: grapes thrive above the fog line in lava-rich soil, drinking in a nurturing balance of rain and sunshine; vines grow hardy in perfect day and nighttime temperatures, clinging to preferred slopes, strengthened by proper drainage.

(While French wine connoisseurs use the earthy expression terroir to describe the precious results, local vintners — rendered speechless by one sip — simply exhale, "Oh my God!")

This influential blend of environmental ingredients produces the finest fruit in the world — a local treasure being discovered by established Napa Valley wineries. Since new Atlas Peak Appellation brands have emerged, the region is commanding tremendous respect in the cult-wine category. Bialla Vineyards is proud to be included in this elite collection.
