    Winemaker Notes

    Blackberry, roast beef, violets, black licorice, toffee, fig and quince, black currants, cedar in a lovely, well integrated nose. Roast duck and black truffle attack, layers of soft billowy tannins, leads to mid-palate, managing to stay nimble and avoid being cloying, with beautifully balanced acidity. With coconut and dark chocolate in persistent finish.

    Winemaker Aaron Pott’s international experience has led him to value the particularities of each vineyard. He claims not to have a style of winemaking, rather an approach by which the full, individual character of each vineyard is naturally expressed. Trained in viticulture as well as oenology, Aaron understands that the health of a vineyard translates directly to the wine. His non-interventionist techniques are perfectly suited for The Ravens Vineyard, which fit so naturally into the landscape and produces such ideal fruit he has said the wine practically makes itself. Nonetheless, he strictly monitors the vineyard throughout the growing season, ensuring that all phases, from pruning to harvesting, occur at their optimal moment.

    To grow sound vines, Aaron works closely with Piña Vineyard Management, another family-run operation, whose team of quality specialists oversees The Ravens Vineyard. They created it together with Aaron, establishing one of the first vineyards he developed from its inception. Piña Vineyard Management farms the vineyard organically, tending the vines by hand throughout the seasons and during harvest. Their practical expertise and design sense are apparent in all of their vineyard development and maintenance projects.

    The Perliss Family has lived on the property for over 25 years and is involved in all aspects of this venture.

    Calistoga Wine

    Napa Valley, California

    View all products

    One of Napa Valley’s oldest wine growing subregions but last to gain appellation status, Calistoga occupies the northernmost section of the valley. Beginning at the foot of Mount St. Helena, its vineyards stretch over steep canyons and roll out onto the valley floor. The soils in Calistoga are volcanic, which means they are heavy in minerals, low in organic matter and allow good drainage for vine roots, creating less green growth and more concentration of flavor within the grape berries.

    Summer days are very hot but most nights cool down with moist ocean breezes sneaking in over the Mayacamas Mountains or from Knights Valley to its northwest.

    Cabernet Sauvignon is the area’s star variety with Zinfandel coming in a strong second, though the latter commands far less price per tonnage so continues to be outshined by Cabernet in vineyard acreage, save for some important exceptions.

    A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon enjoys success all over the globe, its best examples showing potential to age beautifully for decades. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in Bordeaux's Medoc where it is often blended with Merlot and smaller amounts of some combination of Cabernet Franc, Malbecand Petit Verdot. In the Napa Valley, ‘Cab’ is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious, age-worthy and sought-after “cult” wines. Somm Secret—DNA profiling in 1997 revealed that Cabernet Sauvignon was born from a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc in 17th century southwest France.
