Winemaker Notes

Intense ruby red with garnet reflections. The bouquet is full and well expressed. Flavors are dry and austere, with elegant tannins.

Here, it is responsible for bold, opulent, and dark-fruited wines with grippy tannins and a healthy dose of alcohol. The best examples can age for decades. Each of Napa’s smaller sub-AVAs imparts a different character to Cabernet, such as [Rutherford’s] famous dust or [Stags Leap District's] tart cherry flavors.
