Notes: 2017 was a vintage of challenges starting with an abundance of rainfall in the  winter, that led into a long hot summer, and ended with fierce wildfires. This fruit was picked just as the fires started to take hold of Napa Valley and sustained no smoke damage. Through minimal intervention wine making, this Cabernet shows opulence and elegance with ripe fruit on the fore front of the pallet, rolling into a depth of complex flavors before a long, silky finish with well structured but not over powering tannins. This is a wine that will pair well with meals, yet has the strength to stand alone. While it is drinking well now, over time its complexity will grow, most likely peaking around 10-12 years.
