Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.
Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.
Our Napa Cabernet received choice lots from our Estate Vineyard located in the hills high above St. Helena, as well as fruit from other top Napa vineyards, including Stagecoach and ToKalon. The fruit was hand-picked and triple sorted before undergoing extended maceration for increased flavor and color. The wine was aged for 25 months in 70% new French oak, with minimal handling.
The 2006 vintage has been described as a "growers" year by some vintners. After a late bud break due to an unseasonably cool spring, the Napa Valley experienced a record setting heat wave in July which allowed the grapes to catch up in ripening. An ideal mild weather pattern came in August and an "Indian Summer" followed into October allowing for slow and even ripening resulting in acids and sugars in perfect harmony.
Our 2006 Napa Cabernet is dark purple in color with aromas of violets, cassis framed by cedar and vanilla. The mouthfeel is focused with fine tannins and a long finish. We recommend pairing this wine with a prime Rib-Eye steak off the grill.
"A blend of 79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Merlot, and the rest Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc, the 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa reveals abundant aromas and flavors of cassis, new saddle leather, spice box, and licorice. Robust but sweet tannins, and impressive concentration and length suggest it will drink well for 10-12 years. This is another sleeper of the vintage that readers should be able to find discounted to under $50 a bottle.

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...Read More About Napa Valley
(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,...Read More About Cabernet Sauvignon
