WINEMAKER COMMENTS: This limited production Cabernet Sauvignon was grown in the middle section of a single vineyard in Calistoga, Napa Valley AVA. It is a special block, where red volcanic soils merge with volcanic ash. Its location is a little bit cooler than fruit from the top of the hill, so we get extra hangtime in the resulting fruit. 2019 was an abundant vintage and we had more fruit from this block then we can fit into our Reserve wine so we decide to make a small amount of single vineyard expression Cabernet Sauvignon.

TASTING NOTES: 2019 Calistoga Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve.

A beautiful and aromatic Cabernet, Dark plums, herbs, cassis and tobacco are some of the aromas and flavors that emerge from this well delineated, elegant Cabernet Sauvignon. Bright with black cherry notes, rich ripe blackberries combine to form a dark core luxuriating in finely textured tannins. The silky mouthfeel is kept interesting with the ever so subtle savory notes of thyme and comforting hints of baking spices.
