Winemaker Notes



Our 2014 Villa Vista, while made in the Napa Valley, wishes it had been born in Italy. It radiates all things red, racy, and beautiful - red cherries, red lipstick and red roses. The co-fermented lot contributes notes normally associated with a fruit-forward Italian wine, and the Cabernet core incorporates nice structure, red fruit and spice. The mouth is sleek and smooth upon entry with its silken tannins. The palate’s full, rich volume leads to an acidic finish framed by supple tannins.



Composition



82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Cabernet Franc, 4% Syrah and 2% Malbec, the latter three varietals from a co-fermented lot



Production Notes



Wine lots and barrels selected for our Villa Vista Cabernet Sauvignon don’t necessarily come from a particular spot on the estate (à la Vineyard Designate), but rather share common flavor and structural attributes that highlight bright red fruit and a balance of sweet and savory spice aromas. Certain lots are pushed further in the desired flavor and structural profile by co-fermenting with other varieties.



Vineyard Notes



We in the Napa Valley have suffered an embarrassment of riches in terms of having a string of exceptional vintages in recent years. Starting in 2012 and continuing through 2015, each has provided near ideal conditions for ripening fruit perfectly. None, however, stands out in our memory like the 2014. For sheer volume of aroma and flavor in every variety we grow on the estate, 2014 is extraordinary.
