    Winemaker Notes

    The Carpenter Vineyard is located just east of the city of Napa, at the base of the Vaca mountain range in the Coombsville area. The soils are composed of deep, volcanic, gravelly loam, which drains well throughout the winter months. Cool growing conditions contribute heavily to the character of this wine. Fog hangs over the vineyard until mid-morning and prevailing winds from the bay move through in the afternoon. The summer days rarely reach extreme temperatures, so the vines enjoy nice, temperate conditions. These cooler conditions allow for slow ripening and long "hang time", which helps develop tannin maturity. This vineyard is one of the last to be harvested each year.Bold and impressive, this 100% Cabernet strikingly resembles hillside fruit, although the vineyard is fairly flat. The color is a beautiful shade of garnet with aromas of cassis, tea and herb. Currant, tobacco and dark chocolate aromas, coupled with sweet, toasty oak are uplifted by the firm, yet rich tannins that are evident from start to finish. This tight core of fruit surrounded by fleshy tannins is the signature of the vineyard.

    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 wines. 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.
