2019 Napa Valley
Cabernet Sauvignon

Capturing the diversity and complexity of this famed region with layers of blackcurrant, boysenberry, and graphite. *New Release*

A blend of cabernet sauvignon fruit from select vineyards across Napa Valley, this deep ruby wine opens with inviting aromas of black cherry, black peppercorn, and toasted sage. Rich, dark fruits are densely layered on the palate, balanced by a graphite backbone and beautifully integrated tannins leading to a persistent finish.

Napa Valley

By far the most famous appellation in California is the Napa Valley. Encompassing virtually all of Napa County as well as 16 distinct AVAs (American Viticultural Areas), this extensive valley system is home to the cradle of California’s viticultural history.

 

 

Napa Valley opens to the south where the climate is shaped by the maritime influences of the great San Pablo Bay. This regular influx of cool, damp air creates a meso-climate that is significantly different from that of the Northern reaches of the valley where the day’s heat can remain trapped and accumulates over the course of the summer growing season.

The other great influences on the climate of the valley are the mountains that frame its contours. With the Mayacamas Range separating Napa from Sonoma on the west and the Vaca range defining the valley’s eastern boundary there are many varied exposures, elevations, and soils here that have been deemed worthy of special attention.
