Renteria Wines

River Block

Cabernet Sauvignon
Stags Leap District

5 cases produced

Our one-of-a-kind lot hails from the Stags Leap District with fruit coming from the Steltzner vineyard on the Silverado Trail. To create our Premiere Napa Valley lot, we harvested a mere half-ton from the best spot on this 15-year-old, dry-farmed vineyard at a perfect 28 brix on October 20, three days before rain hit in Napa Valley. The berries were then individually hand sorted before the wine was barrel fermented in 100% new French oak. These five cases stand alone, providing a big, juicy, jammy, rich wine, with lots of layers of fruit.


Aging Process

20 months new French oak
