Tasting Notes
Aroma: 

This beautiful Cabernet Sauvignon opens with dark fruit aromas of blackberry and dark cherry. 

Palate: 

Sweet, juicy fruits of raspberry and blueberries grace the palate with notes of dark cocoa and gingerbread. This is a well- balanced wine with great weight and density and a long satisfying finish.

Winemaking
Vintage Notes: 

The unseasonably warm temperatures in the early growing season in the Napa Valley in 2015 resulted in early bud break and bloom. Colder temperatures later in the season caused uneven fruit set and resulted in a smaller crop than previous average yields. Winemakers and vineyard crews worked diligently to pick and sort the best berries. Harvest began as early  as July 22, one of the earliest harvests recorded and concluded by mid- October. While drought was still a concern for most of California, Napa Valley received 75% of normal rainfall for the water year.
