*Add to shopping cart to see final price.
This fine Cabernet Sauvignon was created from only very high end, hillside estate winery Cab producers in Calistoga (70%), Pritchard Hill (18.5%), Coombsville (10%) and Oak Knoll (1.5%). The wine was produced from three different estate sources and blended together to make a very complex, concentrated and dense wine that is everything you expect in a $100+ bottle from the Napa Valley, because this is what it is. From time to time producers fall behind in sales and need to raise cash which is why TYPESETTER was created.
From the winemaker- “My idol and greatest roll model is my maternal grandfather who was a lithographer, Typesetter and printer, Joseph Otto Molz, he lived and worked his entire life in Baltimore, MD. I have fond memories of him emerging from the cellar after a long day to clean off his inky hands. I didn’t know then that my career would take me down a similar path. As a Cabernet Sauvignon Winemaker it is my goal to make concentrated, inky dark red wines that stain my hands for weeks at a time. Please enjoy the results of my craft as a tribute to the Typesetter who made it possible”.
This wine was made from grapes grown from low yielding vines at 2 - 3 Tons/Acre on hillside vineyards. The grapes were hand picked, sorted and fermented in small batches. It was aged in 50% new French Oak barrels for 20 months and racked 5 times. Simply put, this wine received royal treatment which is evidence is in every bottle.
The wine is an inky dark plum/purple color with deep concentrated aromas of cassis and black cherry notes with a hint of tobacco and tanning leather. The palate is rich and silky with firm but approachable tannins laced with classic vanilla and mocha notes. The finish has a touch of astringency which is akin to high cacao chocolate. This wine is ready to drink now but will improve in the cellar through 2040.
