Nellcôte

Tender is the Night

Cabernet Sauvignon
Napa Valley

5 cases produced

Highlights

  • A powerful wine with sweet, spicy oak suggests espresso and dark chocolate with notes of cigar box
  • 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from the heart of the famed Broken Rock Vineyard
  • Aged 21 months in 75% new French oak
  • A perfect expression of Napa Valley, crafted by winemakers Phillip Corallo-Titus and Ry Richards

Our inaugural Premiere Napa Valley venture. This brawny and powerful wine is classically Napa Valley: muscular, naturally more tannic and truly built to age. Sweet, spicy oak suggests espresso and dark chocolate with notes of cigar box unfolding in the background. Sleek, powerful and designed to express the gifts of our vineyard site with precision and finesse. F. Scott Fitzgerald would have loved this beauty.
