Kelly Fleming Wines

Cabernet Sauvignon
Calistoga

5 cases produced

Highlights

  • This standout, single-block selection is sourced from the northernmost hillside on our property
  • 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, aged in 80% new French oak
  • Cool breezes, gravelly, well-draining soils and varying elevations give us ideal conditions for Cabernet Sauvignon
  • This block is valued for the minerality, depth and intensity it brings to our estate wine

Tucked away in Simmons Canyon, between the mountains and the valley floor, our secluded vineyard experiences the best of both worlds. With terroir unlike any other property in Napa Valley, the resulting wine is celebrated for its vibrant energy, deep concentrated fruit and incredible aromatics. This barrel selection is pulled from the block which consistently produces the most expressive and distinctive wines for Kelly Fleming, representing the essence of our unique vineyard site.


Wine Facts

Winemaker, Rebecca George

I got my start studying winemaking at both UC Davis and The University of Adeliade in Australia. I spent several years apprenticing both internationally (Domaine Meo-Camuzet in France & Yarra Burn Winery in Australia) and at a few highly regarded California properties including Marcassin and Williams Selyem. I explored the sparkling wine world, acting as assistant winemaker at Schramsberg for 3 years prior to joining the Kelly Fleming team in 2011.

Country born: United States

Education: B.S. Viticulture & Enology, UC Davis
1 year Education Abroad, Dept of Viticulture & Oenology, University of Adelaide, Australia

Years in the wine industry: 10-15 years

Honors / Awards:
Confrerie des Chevaliers du Tastevin Fellowship 2005

Winemaking Philosophy:
I think that the best winemaking starts with boots on the ground in the vineyard and winery, and is able to convey the truest expression of a given site.
