Yountville Cabernet Sauvignon

Yountville Cabernet Sauvignon bottle

Harvested from a single vineyard in the warmer northern reaches of Yountville, this 100% Cabernet Sauvignon benefited from the AVA’s rocky, well-drained soils and a long growing season that allowed the fruit time to develop unique flavor characteristics and truly demonstrate the region’s terroir.

Leading off the District Collection series, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon District Collection Yountville is a silky, medium to full-bodied, beautifully balanced effort that has classic black cherries, ground herbs, and smoke tobacco notes. It’s a sexy gem of a wine that has no hard edges and a beautiful finish.
  • Winemaking

    The grapes were fermented on the skins for 25 days with pumpovers twice daily. After fermentation, the wine was gently pressed, racked and aged for 18 months in French oak barrels, 45% new French Oak. Tightly grained, French oak barrels from forests in the center of France impart their oak on wines slowly for a consistent, well-rounded aging process while yielding subtle oak influences to the Cabernet Sauvignon.
