Cabernet Sauvignon
Calistoga

5 cases produced

Highlights

  • 100% Cabernet Sauvignon (50% SEE Clone, 25% Clone 15 and 25% Clone 337)
  • Hand-selected barrel blend of our best lots of Cabernet Sauvignon from our Calistoga estate vineyard
  • Barrel aged 24 months in 80% new French oak and 20% neutral French oak
  • Bottle aged 10 months

Each year we hand select the best barrel blend of each clone from our Cabernet Sauvignon lots. Using 337 and SEE clones will provide the fresh berry and blueberry on the palate and aromatics. Clone 15 provides intense structure with copious amounts of round tannins. All of these profiles are underlined by the workings of fine French oak aiding in powerful mouth-feel and finish.

Winemaker, Kent Jarman

I was born in southern Louisiana, where my grandfather owned a wine distribution company. The culinary aspects of the area, and the fine wines introduced by my grandfather inspired me to pursue a winemaking career.

Education: I graduated from U.C. Davis with a Viticulture and Enology degree and interned at J. Wine Company and Spring Mountain Vineyards. I then worked at Duckhorn Wine Company for five years.

Years in the wine industry: 10-15 years

Winemaking Philosophy:
For the past 20 years, we have had the great fortune and honor to work with wine, savor it and witness its impact on consumers as they navigate the wonders of wine and the sheer pleasure that it brings.
