Nose

Growing Conditions

The 2014 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon was sourced from the West Side of the renowned, St. Helena sub-appellation including both valley floor and hillside fruit. Petite Sirah from rocky river beds in Yountville was added to give layers of complexity and plush tannins.

Harvest

Grapes were harvested in October.

Winemaking

fermented for three weeks at warm temperatures for optimal flavor and tannin extraction.

Aging
