Highlights

  • Fruit is sourced from the southwest-facing hillside vineyard, allowing optimum sun exposure during ripening
  • Farmed completely by hand due to the nature of the steeply-terraced, 25-year-old vines
  • All fruit is cluster- and then berry-sorted to ensure absolute highest quality wine as a result

This wine, from one of California’s oldest “ghost wineries,” is a real gem. Vine Cliff Winery is pleased to offer this truly unique bottling from our premium hillside vineyard from the highly desirable Oakville nested appellation. The grapes are meticulously hand-sorted, ensuring that only perfect berries make it into the tank for fermentation. The result is a 100 percent Cabernet Sauvignon with deep concentration, pure focused fruit and an incredibly long finish with plush, fine-grained tannins. This Premiere Napa Valley wine is aging for 18 months in 80 percent French oak for structure while still allowing the fruit components to shine. With an aging potential of at least 20 years, “Jewel” will make an exceptional addition to your cellar.
