Winemaker's Notes:

Although the grapes for this wine do come from our Oakville and Calistoga vineyards the 2000 vintage for Cabernet is an unusual one. From the grapes that the 2000 vintage gave us, we did not feel we could make an Oakville Cabernet that is comparable in style to our previous offerings. So we decided to take this opportunity to do something we have recently been considering, which is to make a softer Cabernet Sauvignon at a lower price point that is more approachable as a young wine. The result we feel is an excellent addition to our Cabernet offerings and yet still in keeping with our winemaking philosophy always to offer the best of the vintage.
