Description

For over forty years our family has been proudly growing grapes in the Napa Valley. We thoroughly select and use only 2% of the fruit we grow for our own limited production wines. This 100% Cabernet Sauvignon is a duet of our favorite two vineyards: 50% Flat Rock Ranch, our most critically-acclaimed block, for its juicy and vibrant approachability, and 50% Mast Ranch for its earthy, tannic structure.
Both single vineyard designates of the Yountville Appellation, these vineyards possessa cross section of geomorphic and micro-climate  idiosyncrasies poised to produce a Cabernet Sauvignon of approachable refinement.

Tasting Notes

The enticing violet appearance offers a developing bouquet of ripe Bing cherry, currant, charred oak and unsweetened chocolate. Deep velvety tannins are balanced with bright notes of juicy plum, fresh tobacco, and coffee beans on the palate. An elegant smooth full mouth leads to a delicate and lingering finish.
