Harvest & Tasting Notes:

At the northwest point of the Napa Valley lies the Calistoga AVA. The evocative minerality and layered fruit flavors of our 2012 vintage epitomize the varietal characteristics of a Cabernet Sauvignon from this appellation. Find ripe red cherry, cassis, cocoa, warn leather and violet on the nose. Mild acidity buoys the richness of candied cherry, raspberry jam, cola and dark chocolate - all laced with gravely minerality. For immediate enjoyment decant for thirty minutes prior to serving or cellar for five to seven years.
