2018 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
BEST IN CLASS! SF Chronicle Wine Comp!
Our 100% Napa Valley Cabernet is sustainably farmed in Napa’s famed Oak Knoll District. Known as the "sweet spot" and heralded for moderate temperatures and balance, soils here are perfect for making rich, silky, reds (it's also where we host vineyard guests). Aged 26 Months in French Oak, this limited release wine has the structure of iconic Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignons, yet is unique in its grace and subtlety, gaining complexity and nuance over time.

Food Pairing Notes
A food friendly Napa Valley Cabernet, this wine pairs with red meats, red sauces, and even heartier fish. We LOVE it with halibut with red sauce and capers.
