Winemaker's Notes:

Our fifth vintage of Wurtele Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon is full of bing cherry, blackberry and spicy cloves in the nose. On the palate, concentrated blackberry, cassis and dark chocolate meld with full rich tannins. This well balanced wine finishes with undertones of toasty caramel.
My Notes:

About Terra Valentine:

Terra Valentine takes winemaking to a new level-about 2,100 feet above the Napa Valley. It is a winery that brings together a state-of-the-art fermentation system with the uncovered beauty of an artisan-constructed building-a colorful and well-hidden treasure of Spring Mountain history.
