Winemaker's Notes:

Our Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is a full-bodied, fruit-forward wine that shows great structure with balanced acidity. On the nose, cassis, plum and crushed berry aromas are layered with a slight vanilla note and a hint of spicy oak. The palate features red fruit flavors that carry through the mid-palate with lingering cassis flavors on the finish. Our Cabernet Sauvignon is fermented warm with regular pump-overs during the ferment to extract color, flavor and tannin. A portion of the wine was aged in a mix of French and American oak barrels.

Pair with grilled lamb kebabs with mint sauce, prime rib sandwich served with horseradish or filet mignon with roasted eggplant and tomato ragout.
