Sal De Ianni, our winemaker for the past 20 years, selected his favorite barrels for this Cabernet Sauvignon
The volcanic soils where our grapes are grown give this Cabernet Sauvignon great structure
We crafted this wine to continue evolving over the next 15 to 20 years
Our Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards were first planted in southern Napa in 1974
This special selection of estate grown Cabernet Sauvignon was chosen from fruit grown in the shallow soils of our Northern Carneros Vineyard. Winemaker Sal De Ianni chose this offering from a barrel that came from the original Old Block Vineyard planted in 1974. Beautiful structure, soft tannins, and perfect balance characterize this old world style Cabernet Sauvignon.
