Vineyard Notes
Our Mountain Cuvee Cabernet Sauvignon blend is our opportunity to showcase the varied mountain sources located within Napa Valley that make it such a unique growing region. Fruit for our 2014 vintage was sourced from Atlas Peak, Diamond Mountain and Howell Mountain.

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 avor and excellent character. Even with drought concerns the weather was near perfect and we were fortunate to have a decent size crop. Mountain fruit specically came in at an even pace and with well developed fruit character and bright acidity.

Tasting Notes
On the nose we find red and dark fruits with hints of herb, tobacco and graphite. The palate unfolds with black currant, raspberry and plum skins intertwined with French oak spices and structured tannins.
