John Anthony Vineyards

Cabernet Sauvignon
Oak Knoll District of Napa Valley

5 cases produced

This wine was made from fruit produced by a small 2.5-acre vineyard on the western edge of the Oak Knoll District of Napa Valley, nestled at the base of the Mayacamas. While all of the grapes that go into John Anthony wines come from small plots that I planted and farm, this is one of my most favorite locations, producing wines of beautiful concentration and balance. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.


Aging Process

18-20 months in barrel. Primarily new French Oak.

Wine Facts
