Nose

Subtle notes of cocoa, graphite and a touch of forest floor.

Palate

Core flavors of intense blue fruit, plum and berry. A silky texture smoothly transitions into a well-structured finish that is in no way “grippy”. A beautiful young cabernet.

Growing Conditions

We’ve been delighted with the 2012 red wines we’ve offered you this year and the vintage continues to deliver pleasure, concentration and depth with the release of this delicious mountain grown Cabernet Sauvignon. Regions: 60% Napa, 40% Sonoma

Harvest

Grapes were harvested from our fourteen individual vineyard blocks throughout the month of October and into early November, after a near-perfect growing season.

Bottling

Bottled: July 2014.

Winemaking

The richness and texture of the cabernet sauvignon was rounded out by the addition of 7% petit verdot, adding spice and floral notes, and 9% merlot, bringing ripe fruit flavors to the nose and satisfying fullness to the mid-palate. Fermentation: Stainless Steel.

Aging

French Oak.
