The Growing Season

Was truly an exceptional year for ripening grapes. Winter started out with very little rainfall, which made growers worry that it may be another year of drought. When March arrived, however, it brought along the much-needed rainfall that helped fill the root zone, water table and some reservoirs. The vines came out of winter dormancy and began the season with ample water and abundant sunshine. The Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced proportionately from our Heide Ranch vineyard, where the average vine age is 18 years old. The Heide Ranch vineyard is home to clones 7 and 47, which are recognized as producing the highest quality Cabernet Sauvignon. Located in the eastern part of the Napa Valley Appellation, the soils are balanced, well drained clay and sand. This region produces exceptional ripe fruit, giving our Cabernet Sauvignon the bold and rich flavors that aficionados everywhere have grown to love.


Food Pairing

This rich and oppulent Cabernet Sauvignon compliments a variety of dishes including portabello and goat cheese tartlets, braised short ribs, or a herb crusted lamb shank.


Aromas & Flavors

This Cabernet opens with aromas of black cherry, black current, and dark plum layered upon notes of toasty caramel. On the palate, this full-bodied silky wine has flavors of blackberries and Mission figs intermingled by notes of clove and well-integrated tannins.
