2017 Cabernet Sauvignon
97 Points Double Gold
2017 was a great year, but it dealt with its fair share of hardships. Half of our fruit was harvested before the fires, but we lost the other half due to it. Our total Cabernet Sauvignon production is 70% less of normal, making this release incredibly scarce. We are fortunate to even have a release, and maintain such high quality nevertheless, and we’re very grateful to curate our golden varietals into our fantastic wines that are showcased in this release.
With a total production of 225 cases of the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon, this elegant powerhouse (87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, 1% Petit Verdot, 1% Malbec, 1% Cabernet Franc) all hails from highly-esteemed, volcanic Napa areas such as the Pritchard Hill area, Howell Mountain, Atlas Peak, and our very own Rockwell Ridge estate vineyard (35 feet below Howell Mountain). Barrel aged 23 months in 90% New French and Hungarian Oak, we’re honored that this wine recently won DOUBLE GOLD at Sunset International Wine Competition and received 97 points!
