2013
Yountville

Cabernet Sauvignon
Description

Harvested from a single vineyard on State Lane in the warmer northern reaches of Yountville, considered the “prime spot”, this 100% Cabernet Sauvignon benefited from the AVA’s rocky, well-drained soils and a long growing season that allowed the fruit time to develop unique flavor characteristics and truly demonstrate the region’s terroir.

Tasting Notes
Aroma: 

Aromas of jammy blackberry pie, cassis berry and a touch of spice.

Palate: 

Upon the palate this wine is dense with structured tannins and luscious flavors of dark cherries, star anise and hints of caramel. The velvet tannins lead way to a satisfying finish.  

Winemaking
Vintage Notes: 

The 2013 vintage in Napa Valley was one of the earliest harvested vintages in years. A warm spring led to early bud break and created the perfect environment for flowering and fruit set. With warm days and cool nights, our team was able to maintain ideal acid levels with optimum, bright fruit flavors.
