    Winemaker Notes

    We destemmed all the grapes, but did not crush them. After cold soaking the grapes for two days, we added a selection of yeasts to start fermentation. Careful monitoring of the fermentation, careful separation of the wine from the skins, natural clarification by gravity and age-old Bordeaux techniques produced a wine that is elegant yet powerfully rich.

    Initially closed in showing mescal, minerality and beeswax, this wine opens to mocha, soy, French-vanilla ice cream with chocolate nuances, and the classic cocoa-dust finish. This is a Bordelaise-style wine in its depth and its "hidden treasure" fruit elegance and subtlety. It is surprisingly soft and approachable with sweet oak spice and black olive throughout the finish.

    Provenance Vineyards
    Provenance Vineyards showcases the distinctiveness of Napa Valley's best growing areas for red wines by selecting some of the finest Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards in the Rutherford and Oakville districts and Merlot vineyards in the Carneros district. The same uncompromising approach also characterizes Provenance winemaking, with the goal of bringing the grapes from these great vineyards to their fullest potential. Starting with its inaugural 1999 vintage, Provenance's approachable, yet cellar-worthy wines display a fine symmetry of substance and elegance.

    The word provenance means "origin" or "source." In the art world, a provenance is the record of a work’s ownership, from its creation to the present day. Connoisseurs place great importance in provenance as a guarantee of authenticity. The name reflects Provenance Vineyards' goal of creating fine wines that are works of art.

    Napa Valley

    The Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without thinking of the other. Although Cabernet has many important outposts throughout the wine world, nowhere else has it achieved such success (and, at the highest end, commanded such lofty prices) than in Napa. Here, it is responsible for bold, opulent, and dark-fruited wines with grippy tannins and a healthy dose of alcohol. The best examples can age for decades. Each of Napa’s smaller sub-AVAs imparts a different character to Cabernet, such as Rutherford’s famous dust or Stags Leap District's tart cherry flavors.
