Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
This wine displays characteristics of blackberry, brown spice, dried herbs and cocoa powder with fine-grained tannins that leave an impression of richness and elegance. Bold in structure, this wine will continue to age gracefully.
Vineyard Notes
Nestled between two mountain ranges, the Napa Valley offers diverse microclimates and soils that are uniquely suited to growing powerful yet elegant Cabernet Sauvignon. Home to historic vineyards, the Rutherford AVA is famous for its deep alluvial fans that produce rich and compelling Cabernet Sauvignon. This wine is grown in well-drained, gravelly soils along the Silverado Trail in the southern part of the AVA.
Winemaker Notes
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 benefited 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.
