Vintage Notes
The 2017 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
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
Ripe, brooding and dense, the nose reveals hints of cocoa, raspberry and black plum. On the palate, this well-structured wine reveals red and black berry fruit, wet stone-like minerality and savory dried herbs. Palate coating and full-bodied, this wine has a luxuriously long finish.

88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot, 2% Cabernet Franc.
