Wine Profile

Vineyard Notes
Two world class vineyard sources from unique Napa Valley terroirs make up our sought-after "FACE" Cabernet Sauvignon. At the northern end of the Napa Valley, our Amoenus Vineyard fruit grows from deep, red clay soils rich in iron and volcanic debris. At the base of the Mayacamas Mountains, our Yountville property lays of the Napa Valley produces a high diurnal variation in temperatures that result in a slow and steady ripening period required to produce intensity and flavors in the grapes from these two sites.

Winemaker Notes
Dark purple in the glass, this wine gives expressive aromas of cassis, cigar box, mocha and anise. On the palate this wine displays a generous texture, with fine grain tannins that add extra dimension to the wines' length. Flavors abound, of ripe plums and blackberries followed b secondary more subtle elements such as thyme, anise and briar. A complex yet balance wine with the ability to age gracefully over the next 10-15 years.
