This rare expression of Napa Valley winemaking is one of only 240 bottles that will ever be made. Think of it as a bit of Napa Valley history in your cellar and celebrated in a glass with friends and family.
Your Premiere Napa Valley wine is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, Clone 337. The Jamieson Ranch vineyards are set above the fogline on Atlas Peak giving the fruit ample time to mature to concentrated flavors. Made in a traditional style, it highlights the Napa Valley terroir in every sip. Aging for 22 months in French oak gives multiple layers of character and this wine exudes notes of blueberry, black pepper, violet, leather, black currant and mild spice. The rich dark fruit lends itself to a lasting finish showing off the beauty of Atlas Peak grapes.
