Anomaly Vineyards

Cabernet Sauvignon
St. Helena

5 cases produced

Winemaker Mark Porembski hand-selected and blended wine from his favorite barrels from the 2011 vintage to create this beautifully refined and elegant Cabernet Sauvignon for Premiere Napa Valley 2013. All of the fruit was sourced from our eight-acre vineyard located on the west side of St. Helena, which sits on an alluvial fan created by the wanderings of Sulphur Creek. The site’s well-drained soils and the temperate climate offer perfect growing conditions for Cabernet, and the resulting wine offered here displays beautiful varietal character, graceful texture and fine tannins.
