Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
The fruit for out 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon hails from world famous Napa Valley. This appellation provides a bold, concentrated and more complex Cabernet due to the rockier soils and exposure to elements that stress the vines.
Production Notes
The drought ended with the 2017 growing season beginning with rainfall that refilled reservoirs and replenished soils. Harvest began early at a normal pace in many regions and then progressed rapidly during a heat wave in late August and early September. Temperatures cooled mid-September, slowing the harvest pace and allowing for gradual ripening. While some yields were reduced from the heat spike, wine quality remains excellent.

Winemaker Notes
This Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon abounds with intense flavors of boysenberry, dark plum, and blackberry with a smooth silky finish featuring hints of cocoa and touch of caramel. Well balanced with fine tannins, this wine is deep and multi-dimensional. Will play well for 15 -20 years.
