Our 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon unfolds in a symphony of fruit, spice, savory herbs and dark chocolate. The nose offers ripe blackcurrant and plum compote aromas, with a subtle sandstone minerality behind. The smoothly integrated palate bursts with juicy boysenberry and blackberry, enriched by Bourbon vanilla, dark mocha and warm clove spice. Wild thyme and red fruits lift the mid-palate and sustain the long, fresh 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.
