The grapes for our Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, a Bordeaux‐style blend of 83% cabernet sauvignon, 9% merlot, 5% cabernet franc and 3% petit verdot, came from top vineyards throughout the valley’s finest cabernet sauvignon appellations, including 56% from our own estate vines. Securing fruit from multiple, diverse sites enables us to craft a rich, yet elegant cabernet marrying the lush black fruit and sturdy tannins typical of the valley’s warmer northern districts with the bright fruit and acidity characteristic of its cooler southern climes. Each year, our winemaker, Julianne Laks, vinifies dozens of different lots of cabernet, assessing each one repeatedly in order to select only the very best lots for our final blend.

Each lot of our Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is separately harvested, fermented and barrel‐ aged before blending. Each is also cold‐soaked for two days prior to fermentation to foster early color, flavor and tannin extraction from the skins. Tank size, yeast strain, fermentation temperature and barrel type are specifically tailored to the fruit character of each lot. In 2013, the component wines aged six months in French oak barrels, 60% new, before being blended in April, 2014. The final blend spent another 12 months in barrel before bottling in April, 2015.

NOSE
Luxurious dark cherry, boysenberry, blackcurrant and black fig aromas, with scents of oak toast and dark chocolate, introduce layers of rich, deeply concentrated, yet elegant flavors of blackberry, boysenberry, fig, currant and fresh cherry.

PALATE
The wine’s vibrant acidity, supple, seamlessly integrated tannins and impeccable balance contribute to a round, plush mouthfeel, leading to a long, savory finish marrying rich boysenberry fruit, French oak spice and a hint of dark chocolate.

AGE
Remarkably delicious young, this classic Napa Valley cabernet sauvignon will develop even greater allure with another 7‐10 years’ bottle age.
