Our 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon is a rich and exceedingly rare treasure, thanks to the deer who devoured half of our crop before harvest. Ripe purple and black fruit aromas on the nose open into a plush palate of boysenberry, plum and mocha. Velvet tannins add extra richness to the mouthfeel, and smooth the way to a soft, chocolate 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.
