Regional Notes

Situated on the 38th parallel, the Napa Valley enjoys a dry Mediterranean climate, creating vintage-to-vintage consistency that is ideally suited for Bordeaux varietals. The Cuvée 38 captures the distinctive characteristics of this famed parallel in a traditional Right Bank Bordeaux blend comprised of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Malbec. The result is a true expression of the distinctive characteristics of Napa Valley and Old World varietals.

Accolades

91 Points

91 POINTS
"Stylish oak melds seamlessly with black raspberry and pomegranate on this medium bodied, rectilinear red. The main thrust is of tart red berry, cacao husk, and firm, ripe tannins, with sleek cocoa, vanilla, and spice box notes emerging toward the end.  Excellent, Highly Recommended."

91 POINTS – GOLD MEDAL
"Dusty bright medium garnet black color. Bright, spicy aromas of dill pickle, toffee, dark berries in cream, and cedar incense with a soft, vibrant, dryish medium-full body and a warming, medium-long earth and nuts finish with fine, chewy tannins and moderate oak. An attractive red blend with lots of dimensions.  Exceptional."
