Description

Our Flat Rock Ranch vineyard is located near the north corner of where Yountville Cross Road meets Silverado Trail, on State Lane. This prized, complex fruit from the Yountville Appellation is a result of unique geological and meteorological conditions: volcanic soils similar to the adjacent Stags Leap District, but also display ancient coastal Marine air currents from San Pablo Bay to the south are caught when they reach the "Yountville Mounts," providing a natural cooling effect that balances warm, sunny days that ripen the rich tannins of our hallmark Cabernet Sauvignon to elegant distinction.

Tasting Notes

The vivid deep red rim with purple center eludes to the superior quality of this wine. The nose is clean with pronounced aromas of fig jam, Kona coffee, vanilla and cherry cola. This medium-bodied wine has supple tannins and medium acidity that are complemented by pronounced flavors of molasses, blackberry jam and rosemary. This wine is built to last, perfect for setting down in your cellar or enjoy it with some mid rare A5 wagyu. Drink now through 2028
