About the Vineyards and Winemaking: As has consistently been the tradition with our Napa-designate Cabernet Sauvignon, this wine is sourced from both valley floor grapes—garnering a fleshy, ripe core of flavors and mountainside vineyards—providing structure and acidity. The vintage happens to be one of our boldest ever, with deep dark structure and even more fleshiness than our 2014 or 2012. In fact, our only complaint about the 2015 vintage was that our yields were quite low; simply put, we have about 30% less quantity than in years past. Fermentation featured both open and closed-top fermenters and gentle pump-overs followed by 4 weeks of extended maceration for maximum flavor extraction, with each varietal lot vinified and aged separately in traditional barriques for 20 months. This Cabernet was bottled without fining or filtration.
