Cabernet Sauvignon, Petite Sirah, Zinfandel
Harvested from vineyards across Napa Valley, this bold Cabernet Sauvignon is a blend of warmer climate hillside vineyard fruit and valley floor fruit creating a wine that celebrates the region’s diversity and complexity. Grapes are hand harvested from select vineyards, both estate-grown and sourced, with vines that average 20 years old. Typical yield from these sites is 5 tons per acre.
Bale loam soil
The wine begins fermentation with a mix of native and innoculated yeasts. Fermentation over the course of 45 days with lees stirring twice each day. Light fining, unfiltered.
The wine is aged in American oak barrels for 12 months before being bottled. Then, an additional five months of aging in bottle prior to release.
A deep dark purple in the glass, this wine opens with a bouquet of boysenberry, bourbon and toasted vanilla aromas with a waft of caramel. Full-bodied with a plush entry, layers of brown sugar, cocoa, mulling spices and currants fill the mouth and are complemented by rich, round tannins. The finish is long and smooth.
