2020 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Winemaker Abigail Horstman integrates four diverse sub-AVAs within Napa Valley; Oak Knoll, Yountville, Rutherford, and Calistoga, into the final blend. Aromatics open with blueberry, dried cranberry, blackberry jam, and mocha. Big supple tannins and ample oak flavors are sumptuous across the mid-palate.

Our Vision

Simply put, Napa Valley is an incredible place to grow and make Cabernet. Every sub-AVA brings unique nuances. I love tasting each small lot in barrel throughout the year before finally integrating my favorite components. The result is a richly layered yet classic Cab with all the power and intensity that Napa is known for, balanced with the sophistication of European winemaking styles.

OUTSHINERY Textbook Merlot 2020

Vintage: 2020

Varietal: 98% Merlot, 2% Malbec

AVA: Napa Valley

  • Oakville's gravelly alluvium and loam soils stress the vines, leading to rich aromatic and flavor complexity, while Oak Knoll brings a "pop" of bright cherry and vibrant red fruit.

  • An essential accompaniment to a medium-rare filet, spring lamb dishes, and the ever-popular charcuterie board.

  • Cabernet Sauvignon is blended in to provide a strong backbone and tannin structure, which perfectly balances the plush texture of Merlot.

  • "Spicy, with subtle ginger hints to the raspberry and red cherry flavors, which linger with vanilla bean notes."

Our Vision

We like to think of our Napa Valley Merlot as our right place, right time wine. You’d be hard-pressed to find a California region where Merlot flourishes better than in the Napa Valley. The slightly longer growing season allows those lush, plush qualities to mature while also giving enough space for the fruit to come to life. The ideal amount of tannin gives the wine enough structure for aging.

Your Experience

2020 Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc

To achieve both bright acid and a weighty mouthfeel, our Sauvignon Blanc grapes come from two superb sites. Oak Knoll brings zesty citrus;, while sunny St. Helena provides a core of ripe fruit. A combination of stainless steel fermentation with a small percentage barrel fermented results in a luscious, textural mouthfeel and bracing minerality for which classic Sauv Blancs are known.

Textbook Sauvignon Blanc Napa Valley 2020

Vintage: 2020

Varietal: Sauvignon Blanc

AVA: Napa Valley

  • A spellbinding blend of ripe honeydew, crisp Asian pear, and apple blossom, further enhanced by flavors of Meyer lemon curd.

  • This wine is deal with classic matches like fresh seafood and grilled veggies, but the touch of sweetness and crisp acidity balances out spice and fats, making this a great match for kimchi-jjigae, a spicy Korean stew.

  • None of the lots went through malolactic fermentation as our goal was to capture freshness. We created texture and complexity through careful aging in neutral French oak.

Our Vision

Hand-picked grapes sourced from two growing appellations; Oak Knoll and St. Helena. Fermenting the majority in stainless steel brought the fruit flavors to the forefront, but a small portion was barrel fermented in neutral French oak to create a rounder mouthfeel. Frequent bâtonnage or “stirring of the lees” achieved beautiful texture.
