Our Cabernet Sauvignon is crafted from diverse, premium fruit thoughtfully cultivated by a variety of small vineyards spanning the Napa Valley. Low yields and great clonal pedigree, combined with meticulous farming within a variety of different appellations, are essential to producing our Cabernet Sauvignon. We believe it’s blend of intensely ripe fruit that results in our wine’s unique character, complexity, depth and balance.
The wine is a stunning balance between power and finesse. It is a lush, layered example of the best Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon can offer. Aromas of blackberry, cassis and blueberry mingle with notes of molasses, bay, pastry crust and graphite. The palate showcases a velvet texture, with supple tannins wrapped around flavors of black current, dark chocolate flavors and a rich finish of incredible length.
