The wine is brimming with fruit aromas and flavors biased to the black fruit end of the Cabernet spectrum: plums, blackberry, black currant. Rich and full-bodied on the palate, this Cabernet drinks well on release but will soften and develop with additional age. Comprised of 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, the Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is crafted from grapes grown on our estate hillside vineyards (30%) in conjunction with grapes from other mature, high-quality, low-yielding Napa Valley Cabernet vineyards located on the valley floor. This produces a wine that displays a broad spectrum of aromas, flavors, and textures that Cabernet can show in the Napa Valley. It is aged a total of 18 months in a blend of French and American oak barrels.
