Regional Notes

Harvest occurred at the beginning of September through mid-October, allowing the grapes to develop deep fruit intensity. The grapes were stainless steel fermented and received extended skin contact before being transferred to barrels. The wine was aged in small French oak barrels and underwent malolactic fermentation and then racked prior to
bottling.

Vintage Notes

2006 was an excellent vintage in Napa Valley, albeit a difficult one. A cool, wet spring caused a delay in budbreak and put the vineyards a month behind schedule. While May and June offered mild temperatures, a heat spike in June threatened the grapes. Summer gave way to a very cold harvest, which caused complications in the vineyards. However, all of these led to very selective harvesting of the fruit and wonderful concentration of fruit flavors and finegrained tannins.

"A good, everyday Cabernet...with ne classic avors of blackberries, black currants and oak. Give it a brief decant before drinking."
