The Napa Valley

The Napa Valley is widely considered one of the top wine regions in California and the United States. Though small in size, the Napa Valley consists of 14 appellations with unique micro-climates and varying soils, offering ideal winemaking conditions. A combination of maritime climate, mountain and valley topography and varying soil conditions combine to offer ideal conditions for growing a broad range of grape varietals.

The Vineyards

The fruit for the 2012 Wine Spots Cabermet Sauvignon was sourced from the Stags Leap and Coombsville AVAs. The Stags Leap vineyards are planted in gravelly soils with sunny exposure that result in wines with balanced acidity and fine-grained tannins. The vineyards in the Coombsvilla AVA are planted in gravelly, well-drained hillside soils that are exposed to sunlight at low temperatures, producing wines with a dense palate and great structure.

The Winemaking

Harvest occurred at the beginning of September through 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.

"Fresh and earthy. Distinct aromas of green and red bell pepper. Silky smooth on the palate with plenty of piquancy and tart blackberry and cranberry flavors. Dusty tannins are grippy on the finish."
