Grapes: Cabernet Sauvignon 86%, Merlot 13%, Cabernet Franc 1%

Region: USA / California / Napa Valley / Calistoga

Type: Full-bodied red wine

Winemaking:
Soil: Alluvium soil.
Vineyards: The wine is crafted from Montelena estate and prime neighboring vineyards located in the northern end of the Napa Valley, in and around Calistoga, next to primary or secondary tributaries of the Napa River.
Aging: The wine is aged in French and Eastern European oak barrels (35% new) for 16 months.

Tasting Notes:
Color: Deep red.
Nose: The nose is rich, with blackberry jam, vanilla, and allspice yielding to dried plum and coffee bean.
Palate: The palate is deceptively soft up front, with strawberry and raspberry immediately apparent. These flavors become more concentrated as tannins and acidity come into focus. The finish is elegant and balanced, drawing in bright acidity and a chalky minerality.
