Our first release of Cabernet Sauvignon from the Coombsville appellation has true varietal character: intense Bing cherry and allspice notes. It has elegant power and structure, composed of excellent aromas of blackberry and spice, roasted coffee, wet earth and chocolate decadence.
The 2014 is our first designated vintage to be produced from the newest and 16th appellation in Napa Valley - Coombsville. The grapes were sourced from a small vineyard on Olive Hill Lane in Napa. Low yield and exceptional quality are the hallmarks of this newest appellation.

The 2014 vintage was excellent from start to finish. An early budbreak was followed by a cool spring, great set and minimal heat spikes during the growing season. The fruit was hand harvested on a cool and foggy morning in early October and rushed to the winery where it was destemmed into a small, open topped fermenter. It fermented on the skins for 28 days to extract all the color and flavor possible.
French oak barrels for upwards of 24 months.
This wine will pair well with prime cuts of filet mignon and bone-in ribeye as well as aged Gouda and fine chocolate. It will age for upwards of 15 years, but enjoy now with friends, family and great occasions both grand and humble!
