This Cabernet Sauvignon from our Rockerbox Vineyard in the far north end of Napa Valley shows a poised grace and silkiness that may make this wine disappear all too fast. Sample a bottle now and lay some down for future enjoyment.

Harvest Notes

  • Budbreak and bloom were on time after a late January chill
  • Summer heat dried the soils quickly
  • Small berry size and low yields made for dense and powerful Cabernet Sauvignon wine quality
  • Most fruit was safely cellared when the Oct. 2017 wildfires brought the Napa Valley to a standstill
