2015 Cabernet Sauvignon, Yountville Old Vine


Retail: Club Only

Some of the oldest Cabernet Sauvignon vines in the Napa Valley produce a complex wine with tremendous depth of flavor.

Member Only

The Wine

On the nose, this wine exhibits aromas of huckleberry and vanilla, as well as hints of fresh tobacco, nutmeg, and blood orange. One the palate, it displays fresh, red berry fruit and a firm tannin structure. It has a fabulous aromatic density and complexity while maintaining a nimble and elegant appearance.

Vintage

The growing season started out with unseasonably warm temperatures in the late winter and early spring, triggering an early budbreak. Colder temperatures in May slowed grape development which, coupled with the fourth year of drought, resulted in a smaller crop in 2015. The harvest was one of our earliest in memory with the berries smaller than usual but packed with flavor and color.

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 CabernetSauvignon #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 the available nutrients. They produce fewer grapes at this age but more concentrated, intense flavors that express a greated depth of terroir and complexity.
