Vineyards: the grapes for our rich yet elegant cabernet sauvignon come from areas of the napa valley known to produce some of the finest cabernet sauvignons. There is no question that the character of this wine originates in the vineyard. Getting quality fruit from so many diverse microclimates allows us to craft a stylistically consistent and complex cabernet that marries the the lush black fruit and sturdy tannins typical of the valley’s warmer northern districts with the bright fruit and acidity characteristic of its cooler southern climes. Each year our winemaker julianne laks vinifies dozens of different small lots of cabernet repeatedly assessing each one in order to select only the very best lots for our final blend. Vintage 2014: 2014 was another in a series of excellent vintages in northern california.
