  • Rich and smooth! Our Jefferson Cuvee is luscious, richly textured and elegant. It is a full-bodied but ready to drink wine. Aromatics of berry, plum and cassis lead into wine that is packed with black fruit, cedar, spice and cocoa and with a long, supple finish.

    Wine Profile
    Production Notes
    The Jefferson Cuvee Cabernet Sauvignon blend is always an enjoyable wine to assemble each year. We generally have a relatively high proportion (up to 25%) of varietals other than Cabernet Sauvignon used in the blend so we can explore some additional layers of interest in terms of varietal aromas and textural complexity. Historically, Merlot has been a primary blending component for this wine, as we have really enjoyed the pairing of the soft tannin-higher acid Merlot with the higher tannin-lower acid Cabernet lots. Cabernet Franc has long played a supporting role in the Jefferson Cuvee blend up until 2009, when we blended with Cabernet Franc as the primary blending component. 2010 marks our 12th vintage of Cabernet Franc winemaking and we have learned a lot about the grape over those years. With careful farming and patience nearing harvest, we feel that the grape has earned its place as a master blender in our cellar. 22 Months in French Oak, 60% New.
    Winemaker Notes
    This 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon is like a slice of Napa Valley, as it represents four vineyards spanning the valley from St. Helena to Rutherford to Yountville to our Home Ranch in Oak Knoll District. You can find elements of each appellation in the finished wine. Lush fruit from St. Helena, dusty tannins and berries from Rutherford, black berry fruits and firm tannins from Yountville, and a solid backbone from Oak Knoll District. The wine is big, with a nice attack, huge mid-palate and a long lingering finish. Drink Now through 2022.
