Description

TASTING NOTES:

Our 2015 Limited Release Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon begins with aromas of blackberry, black current and cinnamon.  Flavors of black plum, berry jam and vanilla are followed by velvety tannins and balanced finish.

WINEMAKER NOTES:

Our 2015 Limited Release Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced from different vineyards from across the Napa Valley.  The mountain top vineyards are known for creating wines with intense power and concentration.  The grapes coming from the valley floor help to balance and soften the texture.  Merlot and Petite Verdot is added to Cabernet Sauvignon.  Merlot adds more black fruit aromas and flavors, while the Petite Verdot gives the Cabernet Sauvignon a deeper purple hue.

The 2015 harvest started earlier compared to previous harvests.  2015 continued the trend of a mild winter and warm, dry spring and summer.  Once harvest grew closer, our viticulture team noticed the grape clusters were smaller.  The grape clusters were smaller due to multiple vintages of high yields.  Even though yields were down, the quality was exceptional.  The grapes had high concentrations of fruit flavors and complexity due to smaller grapes.
