    Winemaker's Notes:

    Cuvaison's Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced from the winery's Estate owned vineyard, some 1,200 feet up the slopes of Napa Valley's Mt. Veeder. Th e schisty, gravelly, well-drained hillside soils severely restrict the yields, producing Lilliputian quantities of solid, jam-packed Cabernet backed by vibrant acidity and fine, mountain tannins.

    Aromas of boysenberry, black cherry, violets and mocha. The palate has floral and black fruit notes dominate with rich, jammy fruit. Overall, a big, full throated Cabernet Sauvignon with inky fruit and chewy, supple tannins.

    Critical Acclaim:

    A beautiful Cabernet, whose mountain origins show in the fi rm tannins and concentrated blackberry and black currant fruit. Notes of minerals and violets complicate things, as does rich oak. Very fi ne and delicious, but obviously needs time in the cellar. Should develop well over the next 6–10 years. Cellar Selection

    The vibrant, youthful color parallels this wine’s blueberry blue fruit and sunny scents of violets. Then the extract submerges that fruit in a pungent mineral bath. The sunniness and the berry flavors rise up out of the extract for moments at a time, suggesting the balance this wine should achieve with several years in the cellar.
