The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon is a blend of 85% Cab Sauvignon, 12% Cab Franc and 3% Merlot. This blend creates the beauty and elegance typical of California Cabernet Sauvignon. The Cab Franc adds a wonderful earthiness and mid-palate spice note that is rounded out by the black and blue berries that come from the touch of Merlot. The dominant profile remains that of the Cab Sauvignon. Sourced from vines ranging around 15 years, we find that the grapes’ youth and vitality lend to the strength of character, showcased by richness but not an over-extraction.
Soft, full-bodied texture, bursting with juicy blackberries, Smokey cinnamon and brown spice.

After years of working in the wine industry in California, while continually searching for the right property to work with, we are proud and privileged to have partnered with a family-owned property which goes back more than one hundred years. Originally, the property was planted with more fruit trees than vines – but the passion project in the vineyards quickly upstaged the fruit in the orchards. For the longest time, the family simply sold its grapes to other vintners – though the family always wanted to make wine themselves. When the opportunity to purchase a large winery – across the street from the main house – arose, the family knew it made sense to acquire these production facilities and turn their amazing grapes into the wines they always knew they could make.
