Winemaker's Notes:

This structurally dense, full-bodied and complex wine was crafted to capture the essence of Napa Valley's diverse mountain terroirs. It offers ripe and concentrated aromas and flavors of blackberry and blueberry along with toasty sweet oak. The intensity of the dark fruit flavors in Lot 1 Cabernet Sauvignon are both velvety and complex, showcasing nuances of chocolate, hints of brown and black spice, culminating in a soft and elegant finish. This wine can be cellared for 10 years.
