CALISTOGA DISTRICT
Napa Valley

This Calistoga District Cabernet is full of multi-layered deliciousness. You’ll adore the compote fruit flavors laced with spiced leather, chocolate, and marzipan oak character. A celebration-favorite when paired with herb-spiced turkey and cranberries or grilled pork loin with apricot chutney.

Vineyard Notes

  • 100% Estate Grown:
    Rockerbox Vineyard, Calistoga District
  • 100% GREEN LAND &
    GREEN WINERY certified
  • Clone selection: BV Clone 4 & 6, Clone 15 & 337
  • Harvested October 4-5, 2017
  • 25° Brix at Harvest
  • Small berry size & low yields made for dense, powerful Cabernet

 

Typically 10º F warmer than more southerly districts of Napa Valley, the rocky soils found on our estate radiate heat during the growing season, packing each grape with intense flavor.

Harvest Notes

  • 2017 brought floods, chill, heat and wildfire
  • Budbreak and bloom were on time after a late January chill
  • Summer heat dried the soils quickly
  • Our 40th vintage saw perfect harvest weather and incredible fruit quality
  • Fruit was safely cellared when the Oct. 2017 wildfires brought Napa Valley to a standstill
