Westside Trio

Cabernet Sauvignon
Napa Valley

20 cases produced

When choosing the fruit for our exclusive 2012 Premiere Napa Valley offering, Honig Winemaker Kristin Belair was once again drawn to three outstanding vineyards located on the west side of the Napa Valley: Bartolucci Vineyard in St. Helena, Campbell Vineyard of Rutherford and Rafael Vineyard in Oak Knoll. Nestled at the base of the Mayacamas Mountains, each site produces wine with exceptional depth and finesse, remarkable enough to be bottled on its own. When Kristin decided to combine these single-vineyard Cabernets together to create a one-of-a-kind 100% Cabernet offering, we discovered that, as the Westside Trio, these three vineyards make one unforgettable Cabernet Sauvignon.
