Vintage Notes:

In 2017, climate conditions leading up to harvest were marked by blistering heat. By employing our own vineyard manager and viticulture crew, Alpha Omega weathered the conditions very well. When it came time for our winemakers to put the final blend together, the use of various vineyards favored a few cooler climate sites. The Alpha Omega Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2017 is a dense and very structured wine that is crafted and blended to be enjoyed for decades.
