Miner Family Winery

Best of the Napa Valley

Cabernet Sauvignon
Napa Valley

10 cases produced


  • Your wine is 84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Cabernet Franc and 3% Merlot
  • Fruit sourced from the Atlas Peak, Chiles Valley, Mount Veeder, Oak Knoll District of Napa Valley, Oakville and Stags Leap District nested appellations, and Napa Valley
  • Rich, voluptuous and full-bodied, yet soft and approachable
  • Extended barrel aging with 30 months in 60% new French oak barrels before bottling

This rich, voluptuous and full-bodied 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon was an exciting blend for Miner’s winemaking team to create. It enabled them to source small quantities of fruit from Miner’s best vineyard sources across a range of renowned nested appellations. Prior to release, this Cabernet Sauvignon will have aged for more than 30 months in a mix of new and neutral French oak barrels before bottling, encouraging a balanced integration of each terroir. Lushly textured and well rounded, this delightful Cabernet Sauvignon showcases notes of dark berries and cocoa with a hint of toasted hazelnut. A lovely harmony of fruit, earth and spice.
