Cabernet Sauvignon
Napa Valley

5 cases produced


This Broman selection is our first-ever single-barrel wine produced from our own small vineyard. The site, located on the western-facing slope, literally a stone’s throw from the Howell Mountain appellation, features rocky and gently sloping soils that were hand-cleared of small boulders and rocks to create the perfect nesting place for our Cabernet vines. We chose this particular barrel because it stood out from the others, showing a little more depth and structure. As soon as we tasted it, we knew this was the one for Premiere Napa Valley.

Winemaker, Broman Cellars

Winemaker, Robert Broman

When you ask Bob, "When did you start being a winemaker?" he responds with, "In the dark ages." Over half of Bob???s life has been spent as a winemaker. It is his driving force and passion for great wine and winemaking that makes him who he is.

After earning a degree in Fermentation Science from the University of California at Davis in 1973, Bob held a harvest crush position at Louis Martini winery, where he says he truly learned how to make wine. He continued his winemaker journey at Concannon Vineyard in Livermore, California. While there, Bob helped update the winery's century-old facility. He oversaw the production of all of their wines including Petite Sirah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Sauvignon Blanc and a got his first experience working with international grapes with a Russian varietal, Rkatsiteli.

In 1981, Bob became the winemaster/production manager at Stag's Leap Wine Cellars in Napa Valley. During his four years at Stag's Leap, he worked with Warren Winiarski producing world-class Cabernet Sauvignon along with Merlot, Petite Sirah, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.

Bob then spent two years at Guenoc, again as winemaker and production manager. From 1987 to 1996, he was winemaker and vice president of production at St. Sup??ry in Napa Valley. He supervised the building of the winery and was responsible for overseeing the winemaking for all of the St. Sup??ry programs.

In 1996, Bob started his own consulting business called Wine Production Specialists. As a consultant, he managed production, blending and bottling more than 450,000 cases of premium wine for six clients annually. Bob's experience and reputation as a world-class winemaker have made him a sought-after consultant internationally. He has done so on projects in Chile and the Republic of Georgia. He also taught the Advanced Winemaking and Winery Management course at Napa Valley College. In addition to crafting Broman wines, Bob also consults for other wineries.

Bob's passion for family and wine led him to create Broman Cellars in 1996. It is this expression of artistry, love, experience, family and friends that makes Broman Cellars special.
