Napa Valley’s Spring Mountain District sits high above the valley floor on
ridge tops in the Mayacamas mountain range. Cabernet Sauvignon vines
grow well here in a shallow mix of sedimentary and volcanic soils mixed with
clay. The high elevation lifts the vines above the morning blanket of fog
exposing the leaves and bunches to bright summer sunshine. This unique
natural growing environment creates small, thick-skinned berries with a high
concentration of texture and flavor.
Grape bunches are hand sorted and de-stemmed prior to fermentation. Warm temperatures during the initial phase of fermentation extract ripe fruit flavors and soft tannins from the grape skins. A post fermentation maceration occurs prior to racking and maturation for 12-18 months in french oak barrels.
Full-bodied and dense with rich black currant aromas mixed with more subtle flavors of dark chocolate and savory spice. Enjoy now or cellar away for a special occasion.
