Vineyard Notes
Our three-acre plot, located in the Coombsville appellation in the foothills of the Vaca Range, consists of alluvial soils that cover volcanic ash from Mt. George with cobblestone-strewn layers of rich, gravelly loam. This very temperate micro-climate allows the grapes to ripen slowly and steadily. The result is a powerfully structured wine with beautifully concentrated fruit.
Production Notes
2018 was a near picture-perfect growing season and began in late February. Spring was mild, with extended flowering yielding uniform grape clusters. Temperatures remained steady and warm throughout the growing season, without any significant heat spikes, making for a cool, unhurried harvest. Our three-acre plot, located in the Coombsville appellation has cooler days than most appellations, so have slow and steady ripening. Not too hot, not too cool allows for an intense and powerful wine, yet it maintains its balance.
Tasting Notes
This Cabernet demands respect from the first whiff. Each time you smell the wine, a new aroma is found. It starts with graphite, wet clean stone, dark cherries, framboise, dried figs, crème de cassis, sandalwood, leather, coffee grinds, vanilla, and baking spices. The palate experiences ripe explosive dark cherry, plums, cassis, rich vanilla, caramel and molasses. This is a Cabernet for the true passionate Napa Valley Cabernet lovers.
Food Pairing Notes
The ultimate pairing is with a Ribeye steak topped with brown butter. The luscious mouthfeel and the gripping and balanced tannins would cut through the fat and simply be a divine pairing.
