Auction 15 | Lot No. 46
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.
20-22 months in new French oak, 12 months in bottle
