Cabernet Sauvignon

2012

Napa Valley

Some people might say we’re busybodies or nosey neighbors although we prefer the Australian term ‘stickybeak’. And being Napa based wine industry folk, it’s hard not to be intrigued about the stunning vineyards and regions that surround us. In fact, as inquisitive vintners it seemed only natural that we’d have a bit of a stickybeak in our own backyard to see what we could find.

With a winemaking mate of ours, Wayne Donaldson (a veteran of 30 vintages at well known estates such as Brokenwood in Australia and Domaine Chandon in Napa), and a great roster of growers, we’ve been able to produce wines that not only sing stridently of their origins but also deliver a wallop in the flavor department – not meaning heavy and overdone, but simply long, lingering and wonderfully focused. Wines that invite another charge.

*****

classic Cabernet notes of dark berry fruit, pencil shavings and earthiness on the nose. fleshy and ripe, with rich, vibrant fruit, such as red and black currant, as well as chocolate and coffee on the palate. rich and deep, with finely structured tannins and an energetic finish.
