Cabernet Sauvignon
Napa Valley

10 cases produced


  • 100% Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon
  • Aging in 100% new French oak for 22 months
  • Sourced from the Vyborny Vineyard in southern Oakville and Bonny’s Vineyard to the north of this nested appellation
  • This balanced wine provides structured, dusty tannins and lush, rich blue fruits

Winemaker Stacy Vogel achieves a supremely balanced 100 percent Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon sourced from two remarkable and distinct vineyards. The Vyborny Vineyard lends structured, dusty tannins and plenty of dark fruit from this rocky site on the southern border of Oakville. The lush, rich blue fruits in the blend come from Bonny’s Vineyard on the northern border of the Oakville nested appellation, nestled next to the Napa River. To bring these characteristics together, the wine is aged in 100 percent new French oak for 22 months.

Winemaker, Stacy Vogel

In your typical "gal from North Carolina travels abroad and falls in love with wine" story, Stacy Vogel, as always, takes it to another level. After some post-graduate stints in health care and IT, she was hired on with a wine and beer distributor doing sales administration. There, she had access to wines from all over the world and was able to hone her tasting skills, and fell deeper in love.

So, obviously, she set her sights on California and a career in winemaking. After receiving her Master's Degree from the University of California at Davis wine program, she worked harvests in Burgundy and Australia before returning to the Golden State. Phew! Are you keeping up?

Since landing at Miner Family Winery in 2008, Stacy has managed to have two children and receive two promotions, the last one being named Winemaker in December of 2013.
