    Winemaker Notes

    Auros is crafted with hand-selected fruit from a combination of vineyard blocks in four revered Napa Valley sub-appellations: Oak Knoll, Oakville, Rutherford, and Stag’s Leap. Auros reflects predominantly deep, fine volcanic loam and gravelly, alluvial loam soils. Cabernet Sauvignon made from these specific soils offers a rich texture and soft tannins, balanced by ripe currant flavors and pleasing acidity.

    This deeply concentrated Cabernet Sauvignon opens with dark fruit aromas of cassis, blackberry, and dried blueberry, underscored by notes of violet and graphite. The rich, full-bodied palate unveils opulent layers of blackcurrant jam, roasted coffee, tobacco, dried fig, and vanilla bean. Soft, supple tannins frame a plush, velvety finish.

    Blend: 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot, 2% Syrah, 1% Cabernet Franc

    Winemaker Megan Schofield draws on her depth and breadth of experience with nuanced varieties to achieve her vision of crafting a Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon that gracefully balances ripe, dense fruit with plush tannins. Early in her career, she spent three harvests at Beringer Vineyards, working with a broad range of grape varieties, including the valley’s signature red, Cabernet Sauvignon. She honed her expertise in crafting small-lot Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from Sonoma County at Buena Vista and Simi wineries, before returning to Napa as a winemaker for the legendary Robert Mondavi Winery. For Auros, Megan draws inspiration from the diversity of soil types across Napa Valley. She carefully weaves together each vineyard lot to create a seamlessly integrated wine—a wine that both answers the call of what Napa Cabernet Sauvignon can be and delivers an imminently approachable experience on the palate.

    Cabernet Sauvignon

    One of the most prestigious wines of the world capable of great power and grace, Napa Valley Cabernet is a leading force in the world of fine, famous, collectible red wine. Today the Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without the other. But it wasn’t until the 1970s that this marriage came to light; sudden international recognition rained upon Napa with the victory of the Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars 1973 Cabernet Sauvignon in the 1976 Judgement of Paris.

    Cabernet Sauvignon undoubtedly dominates Napa Valley today, covering half of the land under vine, commanding the highest prices per ton and earning the most critical acclaim. Cabernet Sauvignon’s structure, acidity, capacity to thrive in multiple environs and ability to express nuances of vintage make it perfect for Napa Valley where incredible soil and geographical diversity are found and the climate is perfect for grape growing. Within the Napa Valley lie many smaller sub-AVAs that express specific characteristics based on situation, slope and soil—as a perfect example, Rutherford’s famous dust or Stags Leap District's tart cherry flavors.
