A Fresh and Dynamic Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Dark garnet, nearly violet in the glass, the aromatic intensity of this wine is irresistible. Fresh berries and dried cherries comingle with bergamot, lavender, mint, gunpowder, and sage without a single element dominating another. Fresh and dynamic, with cranberry, cola, and raspberry jam. The acidity is laser focused, the spine pulling the layers of flavour into harmony with the wine’s supple, yet dense, structure. The tannins here serve to elevate not overwhelm the kinetic balance of texture, ripeness, and vineyard character

  • 16 months in French and Eastern European oak, 26% new
  • Quite intense and Aromatic
  •  An earthy, complex and concentrated Cabernet Sauvignon
  • From an outstanding vintage for Napa Valley 

Cellaring: The wine will benefit from ageing

Food Pairing: juicy steak or event wild pheasant and duck

STORY BEHIND THIS WINE

A cool start to the growing season and late bloom in the vines seemed to portend a late, long growing season. But by June, the Napa Valley summer was in in full swing. With a healthy crop, the vines weathered the heat, recharging each evening with cool breezes from the Pacific. Harvest was slow and steady, affording us the opportunity to be very selective in how and when the vines were picked. e result is a wide array of aromas, flavors, and textures that seamlessly fuse into the character of this wine
