2015 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

On the nose this wine has notes of sweet vanilla, pepper and spice followed by blackberry, strawberry, and berry pie. On the palate the wine is round and full bodied with notes of red fruit and bright acidity. This wine will continue to age well for at least 10 years.

Description

HARVEST & WINEMAKING

Harvest 2015 was one of our earliest years on record. The persistent California drought and a cool spring during bloom led to low yields in the vineyard and an early bud break. Careful irrigation and canopy management were key and allowed our growers to maximize quality and create beautifully ripe and balanced fruit. The wines resulting from the 2015 vintage are some of our favorite to date.

The grapes used to produce this wine are from the best appellations in Napa Valley, including fruit from our two Rutherford Estate Vineyards, as well as several other long term contracted vineyards (36% Estate, 57% overall from Rutherford appellation). A more complete list of our growers includes: Sequoia Grove Estate Vineyard, Tonella Estate Vineyard, Stagecoach Vineyard, Morisoli Vineyard, Lamoreaux Vineyard, Henry Brothers Vineyard, Johnson Vineyard, Frediani Vineyard, Healy vineyard, and Christian vineyard.
