Sourced from our Yountville Ranch Vineyard estate in the heart of Napa Valley, this well-structured Cabernet was built to age, but don’t let that stop you. It’s showing beautifully upon release and is fabulously fun to drink now.

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
