intense flavors, enjoy this wine now or allow it to age for the next 25-30

Growing Conditions

The grapes for the 2013 Generations Cabernet Sauvignon are grown in
some of the best vineyards and appellations in the Napa Valley. The
majority come from two vineyards on the west side of St. Helena known
for sandy soils that produce berries with sweet, ripe tannins. The remaining
grapes were grown from a meticulously farmed knoll-top vineyard at
the corner of Oakville Cross Road and Silverado Trail as well as the Cafaro
vineyard in Southeast Napa, right outside of Stags Leap. By blending
grapes from these renowned appellations, we are able to make a wine that
truly represents the best of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon and honors
our five generation history of making wine in the Napa Valley.

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


Grapes were fermented on the skins for 37-44 days to lend complexity and
depth to the wine.


Racked to new, tight-grained, medium and
medium-plus toast French oak barrels for 19 months of aging. Only
our best barrels of Taransaud, Demptos, and Baron and Ermitage were
selected for this Cabernet Sauvignon.
