This 100% Cabernet Sauvignon comes from our vineyard on State Lane in Yountville. This site is planted with Clone #337 which yields tiny berries of intensely concentrated fruit and firm tannins. We’ve enjoyed using this wine over the years as both a foundation for blending and a vineyard designate offering. This is a big chewy wine, not for the faint of palate. A very dark, brooding wine with hints of Indian spices on the nose accented with creamy vanillin oak and mocha tones. The mouth-feel is rich and chewy with lots of spicy berry flavors, deep dark berry fruit and milk chocolate, coffee and cocoa flavors on the finish. This wine should be decanted for an hour prior to maximum pleasure.
