Additional Details

Oakville Vineyard—Oakville: Located at the southern end of the Oakville AVA, east side of Hwy 29 and just north of Yountville, the vineyard soil is gravelly alluvial loam, similar to the To Kalon Vineyard on the west side of the Hwy. The climate is moderately warm in the afternoons, and strongly affected by the night and early morning fog, which helps to keep acidity levels in balance.Atalon Vineyard—Calistoga: Situated at the base of Mount Saint Helena at the head of the Napa Valley in Calistoga. The 31-acre vineyard site ranges from fertile clay to gravelly alluvial soils. With warm mid-valley climate contributing a combination of high intensity yet balanced supple opulence.Bosché Vineyard—Rutherford: Located west of Hwy. 29 on the famed Rutherford Bench, the Bosché vineyard has very deep gravelly soils. A seasonal creek crosses the vineyard which causes the water table to be high in the spring, providing water and nutrients for new shoot growth. As veraison approaches the water table drops, stressing the wines and intensifying the dark velvety fruit flavors.Sycamore Vineyard—Rutherford: Located about 1.2 miles south of Bosché, right up against the Mayacamas Range, this vineyard has a rich clay loam. Sycamore Vineyard produces small berries reminiscent of mountain fruit berries, with intense extract of color and flavor of black currant and black berry with a forest floor complexityOakville Vineyard—Oakville: Located at the southern end of the Oakville AVA, east side of Hwy 29 and just north of Yountville, the vineyard soil is gravelly alluvial loam, similar to the To Kalon Vineyard on the west side of the Hwy.

The palate is met with flavors of chocolate truffle, berry pie, mocha, and black pepper. The sweet oak spice adds a vibrant lift to the wine while the mid palate is full and creamy with well-integrated tannins. The wine expresses a long finish and pairs well with rich foods or is delicious on its own. It drinks wonderfully now and will cellar well for decades.Winemaker’s NotesOur Napa Valley Cabernet is deep garnet in color with aromas of black forest fruits, dark cherry, and lingonberry and is complemented with notes of espresso, dark chocolate, cedar and graphite.

Shipping wine around the country is very expensive. We charge about a third less than what it actually costs us.

Upon receiving the wine back we will refund for the wine minus the initial shipping cost. In the event that we make a mistake we work with you to fix whatever went wrong at no additional cost to you.
