This property is most well known for its iconic quality for over four decades.
  • Only 12 barrels of this Cabernet Sauvignon were produced.
  • 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot
  • A small family-owned vineyard, originally planted in 1976. 50% of the vines are 43 years of age. The age of the vines result in yields that rarely reach 1.3 tons per acre and the soils are unusually rocky and sparse.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
This voluptuous, highly polished Napa Cabernet shows remarkable composure having an amazingly smooth palate for such a concentrated wine. The pleasant nose teases with notes of baked bread and sweet pipe tobacco with a dense core of dark berry fruit mixed with an ethereal aroma similar to warm blackberry pie spiced with cinnamon and nutmeg.
Winemaker Notes
This wine was fermented using indigenous yeasts and is unfined and unfiltered. Our goal is finesse-driven, complex and powerful wines that remain true to our philosophy. We seek approachability in their youthful state making each wine enjoyable early but built to age for up to ten years.
