Winemaker Notes

The 2016 TEXTBOOK Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits flavors of plums, and blueberries. It shows an excellent acid structure and finishes with a soft elegant mouthfeel. We believe it is a “textbook” example of this noble variety grown in this outstanding appellation and that it can be enjoyed for several years to come.

The core of our Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon comes from three sites situated within the Stag’s Leap, Oak Knoll and Oakville AVA’s. The Stag’s Leap site delivered deep color, structure and depth. The Oak Knoll Cabernet site exemplifies its provenance with incredible balance. It is not “over-the-top.” Our Oakville District site, next door to Screaming Eagle, again strutted its stuff, delivering deep color, high-quality grape tannin and aromatics. Collectively, TEXTBOOK 2016 showcases superlative “Napa Valley Cabernet” in a classic, delicious and well-mannered way.

Blend: 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot

COMMENTARY: How wines are created usually begins with the core of a winery's concept, and in this case, it is no wonder why the 2016 Textbook by the Pey Family Cabernet Sauvignon is so elegant? The Pey Family is well-known for its love of balanced wines. TASTING NOTES: This is a stylish, well-balanced wine that is meant for wine and food lovers. Its aromas and flavors of black fruit and oak light oak accents should pair it deliciously with an oven-baked lamb shank. (Tasted: February 15, 2019, San Francisco, CA)

TEXTBOOK specializes in crafting small lots of exquisite Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Chardonnay from some of Napa Valley’s finest locales. Handmade in every way, they express the best of Napa Valley.

TEXTBOOK is so named because after tasting it so many times in barrel it exhibited the "textbook" characteristics one looks for in a classic Oakville red wine; brooding aromas of deep red fruits, dense texture, complex flavors, and a firm, yet balanced finish. "Mise en place" is a French culinary term referring to "preparation in advance". That’s how we operate the vineyard and winery - be prepared, in advance.

TEXTBOOK also pulls fruit from other leading growing areas in Napa including Rutherford, Carneros, Oak Knoll and Atlas Peak. These areas excel in growing Cabernet, Merlot, Chardonnay, and Sauvignon Blanc.

All TEXTBOOK vineyards are hand pruned, hand picked and after harvested, hand sorted in the winery. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do making them.

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.
