Winemaker Notes

This deep purple-black wine enchants with aromas of plum, red cherry, milk chocolate, and nutmeg. The palate exhibits flavors of red cherries, blueberries, and blackberries, along with bramble brush, dried violets, and minerality. Subtle tannins mark the long finish. Made with 100% Cabernet Sauvignon.

Wilfred Wong of Wine.com
A pretty amazing wine, the 2013 Rombauer Stice Lane Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon is both stately and powerful. The wine shows great aromatics amidst its bright and bold black fruit nuances. Accented with a nice touch of oak, this wine pairs beautifully with a standing rib roast or double-cut lamb chops. (Tasted: July 12, 2017, St. Helena, CA USA)
WS 91
Wine Spectator
Intense and complex, with an assertive mix of savory herb, snappy, vibrant blackberry and wild berry shaded by creamy cedary oak and a dash of vanilla and mocha, all working together seamlessly. Pushes on the finish, where graphite and crushed rock details emerge. Drink now through 2028.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Stice Lane Vineyard, from St. Helena, aged 16 months in 100% new French oak. This is a strong effort. Dense purple to the rim with notes of licorice, blackcurrant jam, coffee and spice box, the wine is medium to full-bodied, shows sweet tannin, outstanding balance and purity and a long finish. This is an outstanding effort from the Rombauers. Drink it over the next 15 or more years.

Video of winery

Rombauer Vineyards was founded in 1982 by Koerner and Joan Rombauer and sits on a tree covered knoll overlooking the Napa Valley. The winery features caves that extend for over a mile into the hillside. The caves provide a constant temperature and humidity which result in optimum conditions for aging our wines.

Rombauer wines are consistently ranked high in the wine trade journals. Many of the finest restaurants throughout the country include Rombauer wines on their list and feature them by the glass. The joy of wine is something that's important to Rombauer. Whether you are a collector of fine wines or like to have wine with food, wine is something that truly should be enjoyed. Rombauer Vineyards puts a lot of hard work and tender care into making drinkable wines. And because wine is a simple product to enjoy, emphasis is given to taking the mystique out of enjoying fine wines.

Our emphasis on the joy of wine comes from the heritage of the Rombauer family. Koerner's ancestors made wine in the famous Rheingau region in Germany and his great aunt, Irma Rombauer, wrote the book The Joy of Cooking. Hence our focus on wine as complements to good food and good friends. Every family member is actively involved in the day to day operation of the winery from selecting grapes for the winemaking process and getting the wine to market.

Napa Valley

Red Wine

View all wine

Undoubtedly proving its merit over and over, and in a short span of time, Napa Valley is a relative newcomer in the world of prestigious red wine regions. While the 1960s brought a few determined growers to the valley, by the 1970s Napa Valley already had shown the world its ability to compete head-to-head with the esteemed region of Bordeaux. The victory of the Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars 1973 Cabernet Sauvignon in the 1976 Judgement of Paris, followed by Robert Parker’s 100-point perfect score awarded to the Groth 1985 Cabernet Sauvignon brought plenty of acclaim to the valley.

Though Cabernet Sauvignon undoubtedly still dominates Napa Valley in every way, covering half of the land under vine, commanding the highest prices per ton and enjoying plenty of recognition, other red varieties certainly thrive here as well. Important but often overlooked include Merlot, and other Bordeaux varieties well-regarded for single varietal wines or for their blending capacities. Very old vine Zinfandel still exists in the valley and in its mountain appellations, representing an important historical stronghold for the region. Pinot noir can be produced but mainly in the cooler southern parts of the valley close to the San Pablo Bay.

What makes Napa such an amazing place for the production of red wines? Mainly it is a combination of ideal weather patterns and incredible soil variations. A balance of hot days and cool nights from the cool moist air of the San Pablo Bay or elevation, or both, allows even and slow ripening of its grapes. Furthermore the valley and its more mountainous sub appellations claim over 100 soil variations including layers of volcanic, gravel, sand and silt—all ideal for world-class red wine production.
