Our estate vineyard is situated at the east end of Pratt Avenue in the Saint Helena appellation of Napa Valley along the Napa River. Our Consulting Winemaker, Aaron Pott, purchased fruit from our estate in the early 2000’s for another notable Napa Valley winery, and now he works intimately with our vineyards to create distinctive Cabernet Sauvignons reflecting our terrior. A generous vintage with ideal weather and fine-tuned vineyard practices that limited vine yield contributed to a small crop of intensely flavored fruit with mature tannins and optimal phenolic development.
Aromas of plum, fig, bramble, cola , nutmeg and a note of au jus preempt flavors of black currant , cherry, roasted coffee, toffee and hints of black licorice and orange zest. Textured tannins accentuate flavors that persist on a long finish with notes of cedar and Kola nut. Enjoy this wine now through 2022.
Our vineyard is managed by Elizabeth Tangney and our estate crew, with consulting from winemaker Aaron Pott and viticulture guru, Jim Barbour.
