Cabernet Sauvignon
Napa Valley

5 cases produced

Highlights

  • Vineyard located in the rolling hills of Coombsville, on the flank of Mount George
  • 100% Clone 169 Cabernet Sauvignon from a single block
  • Aged 22 months in 100% new French oak barrels
  • Due to the proximity to San Pablo Bay, the fruit on this block is allowed to hang for an extended time

Sourced entirely from a single block of Cabernet Sauvignon, located at the base of Mount George in the Coombsville appellation. The fruit is 100% Clone 169 from a single block, and provides a richness with texture found uniquely in this block. Benefiting from it location, the fruit gains added complexity from its ability to hang on the vine for weeks longer than other appellations in Napa Valley.

Winemaker, Thomas Bougetz

After working a couple of harvest in the Pacific Northwest, I settled in the Napa Valley and have focused the past eight years on creating beautiful Cabernet Sauvignons and Bordeaux blends.

With the assistance of Kian Tavakoli, our consulting winemaker, we spend lots of time in the vineyards, selecting particular blocks to use for our wines.

Country born: United States

Education: Studied Enology at The Northwest Wine Academy in Seattle, WA.

Years in the wine industry: 10-15 years

Winemaking Philosophy:
We start in the vineyard by selecting blocks from very well managed vineyards, choosing to begin with the best fruit possible. In the cellar, we focus on method that assist in extracting the most from the fruit, while still handling it as gentle as possible. Minimal movement of the wine during aging with as little interruptions as possible. All wines are blended, as we have multiple rounds of barrel selection, and blending to put together the blends that best display the vintage and vineyard sites.
