Our 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon offers a journey in the glass. Aromas of freshly baked berry pie and wood-fired spice open into a palate of juicy boysenberries, black cherries and cedar. Mature tannins support without distracting from the ripe fruit core. Rich espresso notes glide in on the mid-palate, and continue through the dark fruit finish.
This bottling presents the distinctive character of Napa Valley’s southern Coombsville AVA. The vines are meticulously hand-tended by Ignacio Delgadillo, Sr. The Coombsville vineyard is tucked along a small creek in rocky soils. The temperate conditions there promote a long growing season, creating grapes with rich aromatics and smooth tannins.
100% French oak; 60% new
Grapes were harvested in the cool early morning hours to ensure clusters arrived at the winery in perfect condition. After destemming, a whole-berry fermentation lasted 8 days. A gentle basket press separated wine from the skin cap, capturing nearly free run juice.
