The 2017 growing season was ideal in Napa Valley. The resulting wine has aromas of boysenberry, raspberry, black cherry, anise, vanilla, and brown sugar. On the palate are silky smooth tannins and bright acidity, which leands itself to flavors of cherry, graham cracker, candied red fruit, and clove.

The cade Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley is made from two of Napaâs most renowned vineyards: Kenefick Ranch Vineyards in Calistoga and Hanson-Hsieh Vineyard in Oak Knoll.
The wine received 18 months barrel aging in 100% French Oak (60% New). Malolactic fermentation occurred in barrel immediately after primary fermentation. The wine was racked quarterly once malolactic fermentation was complete.
We use several different coopers for the Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon including Allary, Gamba, Boutes, Taransaud, Quintessence, Saint Martin, and Mercier. Of these coopers we are sourcing the oak from several different forests as well as using a combination of Medium plus and Medium Long toasting levels.
