Sciandri Family Vineyards

Labor of Love

Cabernet Sauvignon

5 cases produced


How do you make a unique wine when your vineyard is only Cabernet? As new members of the Napa Valley Vintners, and in great anticipation of our first year participating in Premiere, we decided to let the family take matters into their own hands—literally. Armed with shears, we went out at sunrise, ahead of the crew and hand selected the clusters that would make this wine, ensuring that the best fruit our vineyard has to offer found its way into this bottle. Labor of Love is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, harvested from our five-acre vineyard in Coombsville.

Aging Process

24 mos new french oak
