Estate Grown Cabernet Sauvignon

Vintage Notes A series of warm days and cool nights pushed Napa Valley's vintners and growers across the annual harvest finish line by the third week of October. This year's harvest will go down as one of the earliest ever in Napa Valley and it will also be noted for near-perfect weather throughout the growing season, resulting in a fairly abundant and very high-quality crop. Tasting Notes Floral notes of violet, raspberries, and dried herbs on the nose. Seamless in structure with hints of white pepper, earth and a touch of vanilla. Cellar and enjoy the bounty of luscious red fruit for years to come.
