Cabernet Sauvignon
Los Carneros

5 cases produced


  • This wine is 100% hillside Cabernet Sauvignon
  • Made from Clone 169 Cabernet Sauvignon, known for its small berries and intense fruit
  • Aging in 75% new French oak for 22 months in our cellars
  • Crafted by Sal De Ianni, Truchard’s winemaker for the past 23 vintages

The caves at Truchard have been a resting place for many of our wines over the past 25 years, but what grows above has been a recently discovered treasure over the past few years. We replanted the 1.8-acre hill above our cellars in 2009 with a selection of Clone 169 Cabernet Sauvignon, known for its small berries and intense fruit. Practically from the first vintage, this block showed that it was something magical. This year, winemaker Sal DeIanni selected a special barrel for this Premiere Napa Valley offering - 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from the Napa Valley.
