Winemaker's Notes:

Our Estate is divided into over two dozen individual vineyard blocks. Soil types, clones, rootstocks and microclimates vary from block to block showcasing the diversity of Stags Leap District fruit we have to work with every year. In some harvests we select a specific vineyard's grapes for individual bottling. We are proud to introduce Tomahawk Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon that comes from a specific block of 9 acres. Long before California's statehood, the Wappo Indian tribe thrived in what would be Napa County. Artifacts left behind by these resilient native people have been found in our area. This label is a tribute to those who preceded us on this bountiful land. This wine offers the fruit intensity and elegance appreciated by lovers of Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon. We are sure you will enjoy this very special bottle.

The color is deep burgundy with intense purple hue.

On the nose, this wine is a prime example of what deems the 2007 vintage so stellar. Black cherry, floral, cassis, cocoa, vanilla -this wine is explosive aromatically.

In the palate it is full bodied with muscular tannin structure, yet still has the elegance and smoothness one expects from Stags Leap District.
