"This is tight and focused with blackberries, chocolate, and black tea. Full-bodied, round and juicy. Slightly bitter at the end. A lovely wine now. Drink or hold.” - James Suckling

Vineyard Notes

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.

Winemaking Notes

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.
