2016 Cabernet Sauvignon
With each vintage, we intend to capture the estate’s potential in every bottle – without a heavy hand in the winemaking process. We believe an estate wine should be expressive, and yet consistently excellent each year. This small lot of 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is no exception. Sourced from a single block on the Somerston Estate property, our winemaker Craig Becker highlights the diversity and distinction of Celestial Vineyard. The Celestial vineyard sits on a steep, rocky hillside at 1,100 ft. above sea level. The elevation, slope and soils of this block have all of the elements necessary to create a single vineyard Cabernet powerhouse. From structure to richness to power to aromatics, it is an impressive site to harvest and from which to develop exceptional wines. Your Premiere Napa Valley offering is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, aged for 24 months in new French oak. This wine will be ready to drink immediately, or lay down for 10 to 15 years in the bottle.
