Description

This rare expression of Napa Valley winemaking is one of only 60 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 from Gregory Bitz’s single-acre Jack’s Vineyard at 1,700 feet atop Howell Mountain. It was selected by winemaker David Tate from a single barrel deemed to be a pure and unique micro-vineyard expression of Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon. After hand picking and a couple of days of cold maceration, the fermentation kicked off and pump overs were preformed twice-a-day for twelve days. The short period of maceration was due to the small berries and quick extraction. The wine was then pressed and will age in French oak barrels for 22 months.
