The Wine

This 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon, Yountville Old Vine is a testament to the complexity
of flavors that are the result of caring for old vines. The wine is elegant and statuesque with aromas of blackberries, ripe blueberries, black currant, cinnamon and caramel. It is an age-worthy, dense and inky wine with surprisingly silky tannins that opens up to reveal more complex notes of red pepper, sandalwood and bay leaf. Enjoy this wine
with roasted rack of lamb, Wagyu beef and truffled roasted fingerling potatoes.

Vintage

The 2018 vintage was a bountiful vintage marked by cool, consistent temperatures and a
timely rainfall for bud break in March and April. Harvest began rather late, on October twenty-fifth, and the grapes were of the highest quality with lower alcohol and high acidity.

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 the available nutrients. They produce fewer grapes at this age but more concentrated, intense flavors that express a greater depth of terroir and complexity. We farm all of our certified organic vineyards naturally,
using the principles of regenerative agriculture.
