    Winemaker Notes

    Sourced from the Uxmal vineyard at 940m above sea level, the Domingo Vineyard at 1,100m above sea level and the Nicasia vineyard, at 1,000m above sea level. All year round the vineyards are managed with modern pruning and trellising techniques.

    Tasting Notes Aromas of sweet juicy raspberry fruit and black pepper give way to flavors of the same in this full-bodied Cab. With amazing concentration and ripe tannins, this Cab will give many California Cabs a run for the money at twice the price.

    The [Napa Valley] and [Cabernet Sauvignon] are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without thinking of the other. Although Cabernet has many important outposts throughout the wine world, nowhere else has it achieved such success (and, at the highest end, commanded such lofty prices) than in Napa. 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.
