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. The fruit for your Premiere Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon was sourced from rugged hillside microclimates in rich, volcanic bedrock alluvial fans. Small, comcentrated berries from this site were hand-selected and sorted to produce dark, rich, complex flavors with balanced tannins. The juice was cold soaked, then fermented and aged for 24 months in 100% new French oak barrels. The combination of Cabernet Sauvignon with a kiss of Cabernet Franc and Petite Sirah achieves profound complexity with age.
