The 2013 harvest was early, even and excellent with all of our Estate fruit in the winery by October 10th. A warm dry spring brought an early bud break and created ideal conditions for flowering and fruit set. In the weeks after Labor Day, a moderate heat event followed by a period of perfect weather created a dream scenario for end-of-season ripening. Rain was not a factor, and for the second vintage in a row, the quality of the grapes was exceptional throughout Napa Valley.


This estate-grown Cabernet Sauvignon reveals gorgeous aromas of black cherry, currant, cocoa, Castelvetrano olive and moist earth. On the palate, firm age-worthy tannins unwind slowly, framing flavors of black currant, warm spice cake, slate and pomegranate molasses.
