2020 Cabernet Sauvignon
Oak Knoll District of Napa Valley
Our Nancy’s 100% Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon was crafted from fruit from our sustainably farmed “home” vineyard in the famed Oak Knoll District of Napa Valley nested appellation. Known as the “sweet spot” and heralded for moderate temperatures and balance, soils here are perfect for making rich, silky, reds … and it’s also where we host vineyard guests. Aging 23 months in French oak, this limited-release wine has the structure of iconic Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignons, yet is unique in its grace and subtlety, gaining complexity and nuance over time.
