Wine Description

(From 2013 Vintage) The fruit was hand harvested in the cool morning hours and brought to the winery in half ton bins. At the winery, the clusters were sorted using a double sorting system. First, the clusters were sorted by hand. The fruit then ran through a small destemmer that removed stems from the grapes prior to the individual berries being sorted, either by hand or with an optical sorter, to ensure that the most ideal grapes were chosen. These berries were delivered to a fermenter where there was a period of resting on skins. Warm fermentation temperatures were encouraged along with gentle cap maceration to achieve the desired color and structure for the wine before an extended maceration time on skins prior to final pressing. The wine was transferred directly to barrel for 18 months of maturation

Winemaker's Notes

This Napa Valley Estate Cabernet Sauvignon presents with deep vibrant red and purple shades. Intense aromas of black currant and black plum dominate, combining with subtle elements of espresso, anise and dark toasted French oak. Flavors follow with blackberry and black plum, molasses and a sweet fruit ripeness entwined with a note of dark cocoa. This is a rich, structured wine with excellent depth and flavor.
