    Winemaker's Notes:

    92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc

    This appealing Napa Valley bottling highlights the complexity of the Cabernet Sauvignon varietal. Since 1978, Duckhorn Vineyards has been producing Cabernet Sauvignon that embodies the diversity of Napa Valley winegrowing and offers classic Cabernet elements of currant, cherry, plum and olive.

    Though the 2008 growing season presented certain challenges—from early frosts to drought conditions—a meticulous approach to viticulture and sorting yielded small crops with good concentration, highlighting soft, appealing tannins for our red varietals and bright acidity for our white grapes. A long, moderately cool summer led to a harvest that commenced in mid-August and concluded in early November. This relatively relaxed pace allowed us to pick in numerous passes to ensure quality, often focusing on individual rows or a single side of the vines.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Generous casis flavors fill this curranty cabernet. It's inky and simple, a dark red to serve with roast lamb.
