Napa Valley, Coombsville District
Coombsville District is one of the premier sub-regions within the Napa Valley, with its proximity to the Bay leading to a cooler growing season and more elegant wines. While Cabernet does well in the warmer regions to the north in Napa, the Coombsville District presents a more elegant, refined Cabernet, with stunning depth.
It is a little cooler in the southern end of Napa Valley, and we benefit from this by being able to ripen the grapes slowly and evenly. The 2018 vintage has produced wines that are opulent and velvety, with great layers and depth.
These grapes were hand-picked in the middle of the night, when the temperature is ideal, then destemmed and hand sorted. Fermentation lasted 12 days, with 2 pumpovers per day, then macerated on the skins for 16 days. The wine was aged for 30 months in oak barrels, 1/3 new French oak and 2/3 neutral barrels.

Big & Jammy!
Picked from old vines in Chiles Valley. Deep Blackberry, plum, smoky blueberry, roasted fig, dried dark flowers, cigar box, spice, black pepper, hints of vanilla, nicely integrated oak. WOW!
Rich & Juicy!
Gorgeous ruby color, with aromas of black cherry and plum, enhanced by violet and black licorice. There is juicy intense fruitiness on the smooth palette with roasted pepper and baking spice from French oak. The soft tannins are balanced with bright acidity and a long finish.
Rich & Tropical...
Notes of tropical and ripe stone fruits, with aromas of fig, golden apple and hints of butterscotch, integrated with the richer aromas of light caramel, truffle and toasted vanilla from the oak aging. The palate and texture is rich, full-bodied and creamy, while maintaining a balanced vibrancy and finish.
