The best of the best from two vineyard sites
known for their rocky geological composition.
From the Boswell Estate—a steep hillside
vineyard with obsidian on the surface and
volcanic rhyolite tuff composition below—
come Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet
Franc. Precise irrigation and tannin management
make this vineyard sing. From Bevan,
Merlot from the Sugarloaf Mountain Vineyard,
which is composed of basaltic igneous rock
and produces powerful wines with rich,
The final blend is Boswell Estate Clone 4
Cabernet Sauvignon, which provides a
fruit-driven canvas as a base for the wine, a
kiss of estate Cabernet Franc, which adds
beautiful floral and tobacco notes, and finally
the Bevan Merlot, which gives us our sexy.
We are confident this wine will ROCK you
Winemaker, Chateau Boswell Winery
I would say my path has been paved with golden opportunities; having had the auspicious beginning to my winemaking career from Kal Showket who offered me fruit from his best block in one of the most coveted vineyards in the Napa Valley and then following Heidi Barret as winemaker for Showket in 2007. Since that point I have had the good fortune to work with fruit from some of the most spectacular vineyard sites throughout the Napa Valley.
