Our 2016 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is composed of grapes from vineyards in Atlas Peak and Oakville. The 2016 vintage was the last of the drought years and one of the warmest years on record. Warm temperatures and low rainfall produced extremely low yields resulting in concentrated wines with distinct tannins.
This wine has elegance and finesse, and we expect it to drink well through 2029.
