    About This Wine

    While this California red blend remains predominantly cabernet sauvignon, the vineyard percentages change from year to year. Our winemaker, Stephanie, carefully selects methods that bring each separate lot to its best expression; then she blends the individual components for a balanced, complex Napa Valley red wine that spends nearly two years aging in French oak barrels. The finished wine offers bright aromas of boysenberry and blackberry, with just a touch of minerality and perfumed oak.

    We select grapes for this special Napa Valley red blend from our three distinct estates along the Vaca mountains—the southernmost Suscol Springs Ranch, the mid-valley Doggwood Vineyard, and the northernmost Dancing Bear Vineyard on Howell Mountain.
