Vogt Vineyard is situated atop Howell Mountain, along the northeast edge of the Napa Valley. The 15-acre vineyard reaches from a high elevation with shallow, rocky soils, down to a lower bowl of deeper loam. The surprisingly warm climate, combined with the vineyard's steep, southeast exposure, produces a dense and structured wine, typical of hillside Cabernet Sauvignon.
The 2007 Vogt Cabernet Sauvignon has its typical and distinctive dark fruit aromas complemented with notes of black tea and hints of toasty French oak. The vintage produced moderate tannins across the palate providing a graceful backdrop to the hillside fruit.
