These grapes were hand-picked from lots of our favorite vineyards in Napa Valley. Fermented in small 5 ton open-top fermenters for two weeks with pump-overs for cap management. Aged in 62% new French oak for 16 months.
94% Cabernet, 4% Merlot, 2% Petit Verdot
When the rain started during the bloom, 2019 transitioned from slow and steady to a warm spring. Temperate throughout the summer, offering only a couple intermittent heat spikes. This made for an average yield and incredible quality with harvest beginning in early August.
This Cabernet Sauvignon is complex and lustrous with deep black fruit and a bold core of herbaceous, dusty earth. Blackberry and sweet black cherry with touches of dried sage. Rustic throughout, with tobacco, bittersweet cocoa and cobbler notes with structured, chalky tannins and a hint of vanilla.
