The Yountville AVA lies just south of Oakville and west of Stags Leap in California's Napa Valley. The region's unique position between the warmer upper reaches of the Valley and the cooler regions in the south, allow it to produce red wines from Cabernet Sauvignon that come closest in quality and style to the great wines of Bordeaux.
The fruit that goes into this wine comes from some of Yountville's top vineyard sites and is picked by hand, plot by plot. The grapes are fermented separately, gently pressed and then aged in new French oak barrique for up to 14 months.
Pour a glass and you will find bright but subtle black cherry and red plum aromas cloaked in scents of sage, cracked pepper and cinnamon. At first the wine’s texture is trim and firm, but then transforms into a rich, seductive sip.
