The Wine

This is a full-bodied and well balanced Cabernet Sauvignon with rich flavors of red currant, elderberry and citrus flower.

Having the patience to cellar this wine will reward you in the glass years from now. Serve with simply roasted meat dishes or all by itself to fully enjoy the wine’s complex flavors.

Vintage

For the third year in a row, Napa Valley experienced an exceptional vintage, aided by near drought conditions. Bud break came slightly early, and the modest temperatures through the growing season helped preserve moisture. July’s relatively low temperatures coupled with relatively high humidity slowed down sugar accumulation to achieve perfect ripeness with lower alcohol. Harvest started and ended about two weeks earlier than normal, producing superb quality.

Vineyard

We’re proud to be the custodians to some of the oldest Cabernet Sauvignon vines in the Napa Valley. Our Yountville Cabernet Sauvignon vines were planted in 1959 to the Inglenook clone (also known as Niebaum Cabernet Sauvignon #29) on St. George rootstock.

More than a half century old, these vines have developed a root system that reaches deep into the subsoil to access all of the available nutrients. They produce less grapes with age but more concentrated, intense flavors that express a greater depth of terroir and complexity.
