For our 2023 Premiere Napa Valley lot, we are focusing on a Cabernet Sauvignon made from a block within our vineyard planted to See Clone. Molly Lippitt, our winemaker, loves this block and the performance of this clone in the VEFE vineyard. The grapes exhibit rich texture and density of flavor even before they go into the fermenter, attributes which carry through to the wine, and integrate beautifully with oak.
