Producer's Notes: In contrast to the Estate Cabernet, the 2016 Napa Valley Cabernet is sexy, lively, and fun. The wine is geared more towards the red-fruit spectrum accenting cranberry and pomegranate. On the palate an array of brown spices, namely cinnamon and coriander, lead the way.
Vineyard Notes: Fruit yields are modest, skins are thick and berry sizes are small - essentially, our site possesses the remarkable capacity to do exactly what we desire it to do. Seemingly, Cabernet was meant to be in this soil, and the wines reflect as much.
