Vintage Notes
The 2015 vintage was marked by another year of drought in the Napa Valley. While quality was high, yields were low. Fortunately, that which we did harvest was endowed with depth of character, and concentrated flavors.

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 2015 vintage was sourced from select Mountain elevations and appellations which bring depth and complexity to this singular expression of Napa’s finest Mountain appellations.

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.

Composition
90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc and Malbec.
