Charnu Winery

Cabernet Sauvignon
St. Helena

5 cases produced

The St. Helena appellation is a perfect place to grow grapes that produce elegant Cabernet Sauvignon. We get grapes from two of the best growers in the area, and then age them in premium French oak barrels. Winemaker Mark Porembski has created a blend of the barrels of our 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon that best exhibits the structure and elegance of St. Helena Cabernet while retaining the lush fruit for which Napa Valley is famous.


Aging Process

20-22 months in new French oak, 12 months in bottle
