Outstanding lots of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot from small Beckstoffer Vineyard blocks in special sites throughout Napa Valley were selected for this bottling. The grapes were fermented with native yeast and the wine was aged in French oak chateau barrels, 78% of them new. This wine was bottled unfiltered. It is ripe and fleshy and the complex aroma and black cherry fruit flavors lead to a long spicy finish.
BLEND: 48% Cabernet Sauvignon, 52% Merlot
