Winemaker's Notes

Two of Napa Valleys prominent vineyards, Usibelli Vineyard in the Rutherford Bench and Howell Mountain, have produced fruit for our stately Reserve Cabernet. Aromas of ripe black cherry, cocoa and vanilla-oak are mirrored by attractive flavors of cassis, ripe cherry, and black pepper-spice. Supple tannins and a rich mouthfeel showcase the intensity of this wine. Tenderloin of beef with red wine sauce or roast lamb are perfect complements to this wine, as are full-flavored cheeses.

Learn About Fetzer

Fetzer Vineyards, America's sixth largest premium wine producer, has been producing high quality varietal wines since 1968 in beautiful Mendocino County.

Here, in the rugged hills of Mendocino, they toiled in their vineyards for a decade and turned their dream into reality with their first vintage in 1968. The family sold the business in 1992 to Brown-Forman Corporation.
