Captivating and complex, our 2013 Calistoga Cabernet Sauvignon was lovingly crafted in our state-of-the-art Reserve Winery. Rich aromas of caramel and nutmeg flood the senses, followed by notes of cedar and clove. The bright acidity and smooth, velvety tannins create a perfect balance on the palate with opulent flavors of cherry flambé and hazelnut mocha. This Cabernet can be enjoyed today; however, it will richly reward those willing to age it for at least 2 to 5 years with the potential to age beautifully for 10 to 15 years.
We crafted this wine from some of our fi nest Cabernet Sauvignon blocks, using primarily our vineyards in Calistoga. Located at the northern end of the Napa Valley, these vineyards experience warm days with a cool snap each evening thanks to the breezes coming over the hills from Knight’s Valley. Perfect for this variety, these conditions encourage a lush, ripe character and fragrant aromas to develop in the grapes.
Our Cellar Club Calistoga Cabernet Sauvignon is the culmination of our fi nest grapes combined with meticulous winemaking and extensive barrel aging. “The goal with this wine is to create an exquisite balance between fruit expression, rich mouthfeel and an elegant oak impact,” says Winemaker Harry Hansen.
