Varietals Vineyard Locations :
Cabernet Sauvignon Tietjen Vineyard on Niebaum Lane – Rutherford, Napa Valley
This 7 ½ acre vineyard on Niebaum Lane is a consistent favorite. The Cabernet Sauvignon from this vineyard shows a great core of berry fruit with tremendous brightness. It also adds an elegance and suppleness to the texture of the wine.
Cabernet Sauvignon Ehlers Lane Vineyard – St. Helena, Napa Valley
This small vineyard on Ehlers Lane was planted in the early 1970’s and produces cabernet sauvignon of great power and intensity that gives black-fruit character and rich texture to the wine.
100% Cabernet Sauvignon
Harvest Dates / Brix September 30 – October 4
Vintage: Vintage 2000 will be a classic year for many red wines, thanks to an ideal Napa Valley growing season - hot days and cool nights were only interrupted twice: once in June with a heat spike and once in September with a little rain. The slightly cooler days in September gave the grapes extra time to hang and reach a greater physiological ripeness. The wines immediately exhibited fully developed flavors and excellent color.

All of our library wines are extremely limited in availability, in some cases just 2-3 cases of these wines remain. We have taken great care that these they have been cellared in here at our winery in the best of conditions. But because of age we must ask that these wines are sold as-is and purchases are limited to 3 bottles.
