Jack Mast was the third generation of his family to own and carefully tend the Mast Ranch; in his whole adult life, Jack spent only one night away from his beloved farmstead. Situated on the western side of the Yountville Appellation, the alluvial bench land of the Mayacamas Mountains imparts traits unique to this acclaimed terroir: gravelly soil interspersed with sand, loam, and clay; hillside irrigation, and cool bay winds that provide perfect temperate balance for Cabernet Sauvignon vines.
The deep ruby-violet hue leads to enticing aromas of clove spice, cassis, toasted oak, and vanilla. The balanced palate is highlighted by concentrated flavors of black plum and cherry with undertones of caramel and rosemary, as juicy acidity and supple tannins linger on your palate.
