Vineyard Notes

Our Napa Cabernet receives choice lots from our Estate Vineyard located in the hills high above the town of St. Helena, as well as fruit from other top Napa vineyards, including Salvador, Linda Vista, Stagecoach, Sugarloaf, Broken Rock, Kenefick, and Larkmead.

Production Notes

The fruit was hand-picked and triple sorted before undergoing extended maceration and a long, cool fermentation for increased flavor, color and aroma. The wine was aged for 23 months in 50% new French oak barrels. Our Napa Cabernet bottling is always blended with other Bordeaux varietals for their added aromatic and balanced tannin contributions.
