ALLOCATED TO THE SVS FALL ALLOCATION
Our Cabernet grows on the eastern side of Oakville in Napa. The soils are deep with layers of sandy loam clay, gravel, and red earth. The red soils sre believed to be the results of an ancient avalanche that brought the iron-rich soils from the Vaca Mountains down to the valley floor. All of these soil characteristics provide our wine good natural acidity, minerality, and fresh fruit. Our limited production is vinified in steel and aged in oak barrels until ready for allocation.
2016 METEOROLOGICAL DATA: Napa's third consecutive warm winter prompted an early start to the growing season. March frosts slightly thinned what would become a warm, healthy vintage. As harvest started early in August, the weather cooled and fruit quality soared, prompting a balanced and beautiful vintage.
