Cuvaison's Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced from the winery's Estate owned vineyard, some 1,200 feet up the slopes of Napa Valley's Mt. Veeder. Th e schisty, gravelly, well-drained hillside soils severely restrict the yields, producing Lilliputian quantities of solid, jam-packed Cabernet backed by vibrant acidity and fine, mountain tannins.
Aromas of boysenberry, black cherry, violets and mocha. The palate has floral and black fruit notes dominate with rich, jammy fruit. Overall, a big, full throated Cabernet Sauvignon with inky fruit and chewy, supple tannins.
