Winemaker's Notes:

Up on Mount Veeder, you have to wind up a long road before arriving at Duane Wall's picturesque vineyard. The Cabernet Sauvignon from this remote vineyard has a dense purple color with classic creme de cassis, black plum, and cedar characteristics.

"The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Wall offering looks terrific. It is a killer example of Cabernet Sauvignon from Mt. Veeder. Ed Sbragia, the long-time and highly-esteemed winemaker at Beringer, also has his own family operation where he produces 5,000 plus cases of wine, primarily top-notch Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon."
-Robert Parker, Wine Advocate 94-96

About Sbragia Family Vineyards:

As the master winemaker at the famed Beringer winery in Napa for over 32 years, Ed Sbragia has made wine from every great vineyard in Northern California. Sbragia Family Vineyards is a dream Ed has had for many years, a small, family-owned winery making limited lots of wine from blocks of his favorite grapes, including his family's own Dry Creek vineyards. With his son Adam, Ed also focuses on extremely small production wines from spectacular sites, such as this 2005 Rancho Del Oso Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon.
