Description

With its deep black core and garnet rim, this plush Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon entices with aromas of black cherry, Spanish paprika and leather. On the palate, layers of cherry, dark cocoa and rum cake coat the mouth while a hint of fresh cedar provides an appealing zing. Rich and full-bodied, this wine’s tannins provide a reassuring grip underneath their supple, velvety mouthfeel – an indication of age-worthiness and promise of evolving complexity with years of additional cellaring.

Vineyard Notes

"The 2012 growing season began relatively dry, continuing with a warm spring and perfect weather for fruit set. The vines produced a record amount of high-quality small-berry clusters, enabling us to nurture the crop with great precision. Any uneven fruit maturation was pruned to ensure optimal ripeness. The berries developed exceptionally rich flavor, color and density."

Winemaker Notes

"Picked during the cool of the night, we hand sorted and destemmed the fruit into 1ton bins. With an extended cold soak we extracted optimal fruit and earth characteristics. fermented for 22 days. aged in 33% new french oak for 32 months"
