Winemaker's Notes:

This intensely inky-colored Cabernet Sauvignon wine is grown in the well-drained, stoney and iron-rich soils of the Weir Family Vineyard along the Silverado Trail, one mile south of the famed Stags? Leap appellation and ten yards from the Oak Knoll District, the Valley's newest sub-appellation. The rich, spicy nose of bakers? chocolate and black cherry compliments the brooding and spice-filled black licorice, black cherry, plum and cranberry on the palate. The addition of 11% Cabernet Franc enhances the complexity of the wine, as well as adding to our trademark robust and silky mid-palate. Aged for 19 months in small French and American oak cooperage, our Cabernet Sauvignon will flourish with bottle age. This newest wine is surely a treasure to keep for many years in your personal cellar.

About Hagafen:

Hagafen Cellars is located in the Napa Valley, in the heart of California’s premier wine grape region. Less than a mile south of the famed Stags Leap District and twenty yards from the Oak Knoll District--Napa’s newest and most exciting of American Viticultural Areas--the well-drained soil is ideal for the growth and production of ripe and rich, intensely fruity small lot estate bottled wines.

Owned and operated by Irit and Ernie Weir, the winery was founded in 1979, and the first commercially released vintage was harvested in 1980. In the ensuing years, Hagafen has grown from a small partnership producing wine with grapes from Winery Lake Vineyard, then owned by Rene DiRosa, to a well-established wine company whose wines are distributed throughout North America and overseas. Since 1980 Hagafen wines have been served on numerous occasions at the White House to visiting foreign dignitaries. Ernie’s daily involvement in the two sides of wine production, grape growing and winemaking, ensures the superb quality of the wines.
