WINEMAKER'S NOTES
Our Napa Cabernet receives choice lots from our Estate Vineyard located in the hills high above the town of St. Helena, as well as fruit from other top Napa vineyards.

This wine is very dark in color with intense aromas of blackberry, cassis, graphite, vanilla and cedar. The palate shows intense notes of boysenberry, plum, blueberry, camphor, smoke, coffee, cedar, and Asian spices.
