Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
This powerful and concentrated Cabernet combines notes of cassis, violet, dried blackberries, mocha and tobacco leaf with firmly-structured tannins and a broad, mouth-filling texture. Structured and balanced with an outstanding, long finish.
Vineyard Notes
Sitting high above the fog line on Napa valley’s eastern side, the Howell Mountain AVA is known for producing dense and commanding Cabernet Sauvignon. The grapes for this wine were grown in a single vineyard with well-drained soils of volcanic ash and clay. Due to the elevation and positioning of the mountain, these grapes received long hours of sunlight followed by cool nighttime temperatures, which ensured they reached their full expression while retaining high acidity.
Winemaker Notes
The 2018 growing season in Napa valley was steady with great conditions for growing all varieties. The beautifully conditions kicked off with a sunny spring that led to the vines flowering uniformly and ensuring even cluster development. Summer temperatures were steady, and the Valley befitted from a long, slow Harvest without heat spikes or rain. Cabernet Sauvignon, the last-picked variety always, experienced extended hang time with warm days and cool nights, allowing the grapes to reach their full ripeness and expression. The complex, layered and high-quality wines of this vintage, especially the powerful reds which will continue to age gracefully, will be remembered and celebrated in years to come.
