Tasting Notes
Aromas of anise and dried herbs mingle with intense scents of dark plum, and black cherries. On the palate blackberry, brown sugar and savory flavors lead to a spicy finish punctuated by oak vanillin and velvety tannins.

Vintage Notes
The 2016 vintage for Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon remained on track with previous years in terms of smaller yields of slightly smaller clusters. The quality of the lower yields remained high, in spite of early concerns about the few heat spikes during early summer months. Fortunately, cooler August temperatures slowed ripening to a luxurious pace which allowed us to harvest each parcel at optimal ripeness.

Vineyard Notes
The source vineyard is perched 400 feet in elevation on Mount Veeder’s southerly side amd enjoys morning sunshine and daytime temperatures cooler than the valley floor below, affording extended hang-time and supple fruit with balanced acid, sugar and flavor accumulation at harvest.

Composition
100% Cabernet Sauvignon.
