Vineyards



Our inaugural Napa Valley Cabernet is made from grapes selected from some of our favorite Napa Valley



vineyards. The Napa Valley is long and diverse



with many different soils and microclimates.



Harvest



& Winemaking



The first element was harvested on September 26



th



and the last on October 20



th



.



At the heart of this wine is



some of our finest Oakville fruit,



offering rich texture and bright fruit flavors



. Another important



element is



the Clone 6 Calistoga Cabernet grown at the northern end of the valley, offering a counterpoint of more



savory, earthy flavors.



Fruit



from eight different vineyards contributed to this blend resulting in a complex



wine with layered flavors. The wine spent 20 months in barrel gently evolving and softening before being



bottled.



Winemaker Jim Close’s
