This wine is made from Cabernet Sauvignon grapes grown
primarily on the east side of the Napa Valley. The vineyards in this
area benefit from cool mornings and late afternoon sunshine.
The soil composition and vineyard slope allows for smaller berries
with more concentrated color and ripe flavors.
Bunches are de-stemmed, crushed and fermented in stainless steel. During fermentation the juice is pumped over the skin daily to extract color and flavor from the grape skins. A post fermentation maceration on the skins last for a few weeks before the wine is racked and matured in smaller barrels or vats. After 12 months the wine is bottled.
Lavish aromas of black currant, mocha, and savory herbs with trailing notes of tobacco leaf and vanilla. Full and well-rounded with soft edges and a lively dose of bright cherry fruit that unfolds into a smooth finish. This wine is built to last, but perfectly good to pop open tonight.

We love wine from the Rutherford area near Napa. This is our "go to" wine for every occasion. We continue to try other wines from the Napa area but our favorites come from the Rutherford region.
