Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Library 2017
The 2017 vintage began with record precipitation in the late winter which helped vines persevere several heat spikes that occurred in June. Moderate summer temperatures preceded a dramatic heat wave in early September that prompted many Napa Valley winemakers to begin harvesting. Our winemaking team held steadfast, however, and were rewarded by moderate weather later in the month that allowed our vineyards to reach ideal ripeness. The 2017 vintage features grapes from eight different Napa Valley AVA’s that includes valley floor, hillside and mountain vineyards we farm.
