The prevailing aromas of berries, earth, tobacco, currant and plum, carry through
to the flavors and long, lingering finish. Full bodied , intense, and complex
throughout, with enough tannic structure to guarantee aging potential. Long term cellaring: 15-20 years past vintage date if desired.

Growing Conditions

Winemaker selected vineyards in the Rutherford and St. Helena Districts,
including the estate property at Zinfandel Lane.


The Generations Cabernet lots are kept separate throughout the fermentation and
aging process. Grapes are hand picked and crushed with hours of picking.
Fermented 5-7 days, at 75-80°. Pressed and filtered before moving to 100% new
French oak barrels.


Barrels are from the Never/Allier region of central France,
chosen for the tight grain structure of the wood. Generations Cabernet will stay in
the barrel 22-24 months before bottling.
