Sumptuous flavors of juicy cassis, raspberry and toasty oak are harmonious and well-balanced with a touch of flint. Voluptuous tannins, complex flavors and a long, luxurious finish make this an immensely enjoyable wine.Vintage Notes:
The Cabernet Sauvignon is a mix of clones 4, 7, 29 and 169 from six distinct vineyards, located in St Helena, Yountville and our Rutherford. The Petit Verdot comes from a cool climate vineyard just south of the town of Napa. The grapes were individually berry sorted and went through extended maceration with the wines being on the skins from 36-59 days. It was then pressed and aged in a mix of Demptos, Baron, Leroi and Seguin Moreau French oak barrels – 35% new – for 21 months before being bottled.
