2016 was a near-perfect growing season due to the ideal weather conditions, giving Napa Valley another in a series of all-star vintages. Minimal heat spikes and idyllic temperatures allowed the clusters to ripen more slowly and protect their acidity level. From the gradual ripening, the wines from this vintage display balanced alcohol and intense aromatics. our Cabernet Sauvignon was handcrafted from fruit grown in a range of exceptional Napa Valley terriors and demonstrates how the region's tremendous soil diversity helps produce memorable wines.
