Winemaker's Notes

Treva's Vineyard is a steep, rocky site with red volcanic soils and excellent drainage. The southeastern exposure provides full sun without intense heat. It produces a small yield of tiny dark blue to black berries maturing near the end of September.

Critical Acclaim

"Ruby-red. Lively aromas of currant, blueberry and licorice. Dense and sappy, with cassis and boysenberry fruit flavors complicated by graphite, scorched earth and creosote and lifted by fruity pepper. Good energy and sap here, as well as the stuffing to buffer its firm tannins. This normally powerful cuvee got the shortest maceration in '08, noted winemaker Brown, who added that frost in 2008 cut the yields in half at this estate, 'but not on this 20-degree slope.'
Range: 92-94"
94 Points

"The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Treva's Vineyard (approximately 300 cases produced) is from a hillside vineyard planted in red, volcanic soils. It exhibits a Graves-like, charcoal, scorched earth character along with deep blackberry and black currant fruit notes, full-bodied power, sweet tannins, a distinctive earthiness and a rich personality. It is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from Clone 337 and, again, is aged 20 months in 100% new oak. Drink it over the next 15-20 years.

The area was settled by a few choice wine families in the 1960's who bet that the wines of the area would grow and flourish. They were right. The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon

(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes. Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity. Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...
