The 2013 release from Coombsville, Napa Valley’s newest AVA, is
grown from vineyards that are tucked up against the foothills of the
Vaca Range within the region’s bowl-shaped valley. The fog tends to
burn off later in the morning and settle faster than the rest of the
valley create cooler temperature that lead to late ripening fruit that is
some of the last to arrive in the winery but is widely recognized for
its excellent texture and flavors.
The 2013 vintage in Napa Valley was one of the earliest harvested
vintages in years. A warm spring led to early bud break and created
the perfect environment for flowering and fruit set. With warm days
and cool nights, our team was able to maintain ideal acid levels with
optimum, bright fruit flavors.
After harvesting on October 15th, the grapes were fermented on the
skins for 37 days.
After fermentation, the wine was gently pressed,
racked and aged for 18 months in French oak barrels, 25% new
French oak. Tightly grained Nadalie, Saury and Demptos French
oak impart their rich flavors on wines slowly for a consistent, wellrounded
aging process while yielding subtle oak influences to the
Cabernet Sauvignon. The result is a balanced wine that is a true
expression of the varietal and its terroir. This Cabernet was bottled,
unfiltered, in July 2015.
