Vintage Notes
In spite of the drought and the South Napa earthquake, we consider the 2014 vintage in Napa Valley a recent favorite vintage of high quality with depth of flavor and excellent character. Even with drought concerns, the weather was near perfect and we were fortunate to have a decent size crop. Mountain fruit specifically came in at an even pace and with well developed fruit character and bright acidity.

Vineyard Notes
For this blend, Cabernet was sourced from various vineyards throughout Napa Valley - St Helena, Rutherford, Atlas Peak, Yountville & Diamond Mountain - making this a well-rounded wine and a true representation of Napa Valley appellations.

Tasting Notes
Aromatics suggest cigar box, bold black fruit and notes of graphite. On the palate, red, blue and black fruits are balanced by hints of currant, vanilla and mocha. The young tannins will evolve over time and help expand the long finish.
