Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon
The 76-acre Yountville Ranch Vineyard sits below the western hillside of Napa Valley. Its benchland soils of well-drained Coombs gravelly loam force vines to root deep and result in wines that are a true reflection of their terroir.
Vines were carefully monitored and managed throughout the season to reduce the overall crop, ensuring concentration in the fruit when harvested.
Grape clusters were field-sorted, hand-harvested, and hand-sorted at the winery. Fruit was de-stemmed and cold-soaked for two days.
The two separate lots spent 20 months in the highest quality French Oak with significant new oak before blending.
Founded in 1836, this small but prestigious appellation is situated in the heart of Napa Valley. With its benchland terroir akin to Rutherford and Oakville, these wines showcase similar intensity, layered complexity, and finely knit tannins, yet with a unique elegance shaped by the cooler climate.

Akin to the fulfilling experience of reading a book from “Cover to Cover,” this Cabernet is captivating from beginning to end. From the rich color and aromatics prologue to the supple mid-palate and gripping final chapters.
