Aromas of blackberry and black cherry display pure ripeness. Rich on the palate, ripe flavors follow through with even and gently gripping tannin. A delightful mouth-coating Cabernet nicely balanced with natural acidity.
The Napa Valley Cabernet combines the characteristics of the AVAs where we farm Cabernet Sauvignon. Weathered high-elevation mountain vineyards provide intensity of color, higher acidity levels, and spiciness from the surrounding forests.
The lower-elevation blocks of Calistoga, with rocky soils and more extreme heat summation, provide a lush mid-palate and fine tannin – the perfect Yin and Yang with which to blend this 100% Cabernet Sauvignon.
Harvest of 2017 was unusually early for us, so the wildfires that ravaged Napa and Sonoma counties that year, happened while our wines were already in tank or barrel. We were thankfully spared from the flames and any smoke damage to our fruit.
