Winemaker's Notes:

This distinguished 100% Cabernet Sauvignon was produced entirely from a historic St. Helena Vineyard named for the Lewelling family, Napa Valley growers since the 19th century. Situated west of highway 29 at the base of Spring Mountain, the vines are rooted in deep, sandy loam soils on a gentle slope. This elite vineyard also supplies Cabernet Sauvignon grapes to other area wineries, including Caymus and Viader.

This classic Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is deep garnet in color, with complex aromas of blackberry, currant, and black cherry, herbs, and subtle earthy-mineral notes of terroir. On the palate, wine is medium-bodied, with fine, supple tannins. Black and red fruits on the palate, with creamy vanilla and mocha flavors. Well-balanced and intense, this wine will age beautifully for the next 8-12 years.

"My notes from the blind tasting state it clearly: What people buy a Napa Cabernet for. This is a solid, graceful, oak driven yet balanced with lovely fruit-generous blackberry and cherry, and lots of it."
