A luscious Bordeaux blend of predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon, with a dash of Petit Verdot, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc. Elegant and full-bodied, the wine’s complex aromas of blackberries, black licorice, and a hint of cocoa powder.

Vineyard Notes

Yountville vineyard forms the heart of our Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, with grapes from our Rutherford and Calistoga vineyards rounding out the blend. We farm all of our vineyards naturally, without artificial pesticides or herbicides, and they are certified organic. the result is a full-bodied, elegant Cabernet Sauvignon with pure flavors and a pronounced sense of place.

Vintage: From budbreak through harvest we didn’t see a drop of rain, making 2008 one of the driest years since we began in 1977. Frost threatened the new buds through April, but then we enjoyed a steady, relatively cool growing season until a heat spike at the end August jump-started harvest. The lack of rain reduced the yield but created concentrated flavors.

The Wine: We fermented the grapes using only yeasts that naturally occur on the grapes and allowed the wine to gain flavors and color from extended skin contact. Each lot is aged separately for several months, and then blended to create a wine that is more complex than its individual parts. After blending, the wine spent another year and half in barrel to completely harmonize before bottling. Elegant and full bodied, the wine’s complex aromas of black berries, black licorice and a hint of cocoa powder are the perfect partner with grilled steak, roasted rack of lamb or venison stew.

My top favorite wine! I was offered it in Mexico on vacation and was told it would make me shiver. My husband and I had a romantic dinner on the beach and it indeed made us “shiver”. One of my most favorite nights and memories! Thank you for always having exactly what I need!
