2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley

Our Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced from carefully chosen sites throughout the heart of the beautiful Napa Valley. These sources come from long-standing relationship—friendships, really—we’ve cultivated since the mid-2000’s. We intend to release our Napa bottlings at the beginning peak of drinkability. We hope you enjoy these bottlings as much as we enjoy making them!

Winemaker’s Notes Rutherford, with its red-fruit purity, continued to be a central part of our Napa Cab program, with St. Helena providing impressive complexity and balanced richness. In the winery, the fruit experienced minimal racking with 26-month aging in 45% new French Oak, and was bottled, unfined and unfiltered on Dec 2021. We intentionally leave our Cabernet-based wines to rest for a few months before release while the various components fully integrate. It’s become instructive–and enjoyable—to consider each new Cabernet Sauvignon release alongside recent vintages. If 2016 was deep and daring, 2017 upended expectations, 2018 laughed at how easy it had it, 2019 is the most cerebral, classic vintage to date. Gorgeous, mocha-spiced, forest-floor, dried herb aromas usher in an impressive palate with a seamless juxtaposition of savory/fruit elements. Olive, sage, sweet tobacco, rounded out by black cherry, blueberry, and black currant. The tannins are firm yet pliant. With time in the glass, this Napa Cabernet develops with a haunting and classic complexity. Drink over 5-8 years – decant if opening before 2022.
