Winemaker Notes

On the nose blueberries and dark chocolate are the predominant aromatics with a touch of floral and spice. Flavors of blueberry, blackberry and black cherry commingle with hints of graham cracker and vanilla and a touch of white pepper.

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.
