Cabernet Sauvignon

Rockerbox Vineyard
Calistoga District, Napa Valley
$68.00 CLUB
1 of 10 Barrels

Named for the mining tool that separates gold from sand and gravel, Rockerbox Vineyard is a nod to our original owner who journeyed from Bordeaux to California in search of gold. This Calistoga Cabernet offers up rich, inky tobacco aromas that give way to dense notes of blueberry and blackberry jam.

At the northwest edge of Napa Valley, Rockerbox Vineyard sits at the foot of Mount Saint Helena where the headwaters of the Napa River begin. The 60-acre vineyard is cradled in a natural canyon, and Cabernet vines root deeply in the rocky, gravelly soils to produce dense red and blue fruit character.
