This wine was produced from Cabernet Sauvignon grapes grown on our family owned estate vineyard, which looks out onto the Napa Valley from the eastern slopes of the Oakville appellation. The wine is crafted in a minimalist style. In keeping with the minimalist approach, the wine is bottled un-filtered and un-fined, allowing the plush, ripe tannins, and delicious fruit, distinctive to this particular hillside location, to shine through. Each vintage is unique. This wine is a true expression of our land, and a labor of love.
The 2014 vintage was an exceptional year in Napa Valley and at our Oakville vineyard. This wine, produced from Cabernet Sauvignon Clone 8 grown on 110R rootstock, is sourced exclusively from the Buselli Vineyard on the eastern slopes of the Oakville appellation. Sustainable farming practices, low yields, and minimalist winemaking, by Tim Milos, have allowed the voice of this vineyard to shine through. The wine is round with rich black fruit flavors of plum, blackberry, currant and hints of spice leading to an elegant finish. The wine is finely balanced and approachable now.
