Vintage Notes The 2015 growing season in Napa Valley started out with unseasonably warm temperatures in the late winter and early spring. This resulted in an early bud break and bloom. Colder temperatures in May (during the peak of bloom) caused uneven fruit set which ultimately resulted in a much smaller crop in 2015, compared to both average yields and the three abundant years that preceded it. As a result, winemakers worked together with vineyard crews and employed new technologies, like optical sorting, to ensure they picked and crushed only the best quality grapes. The harvest was one of the earliest on record in Napa Valley, beginning on July 22 with the picking of grapes for sparkling wine, and concluding for most all vintners and growers in the valley by mid-October. While ongoing drought was of great concern to farmers around California, Napa Valley received 75% of normal rainfall for the year, bringing far fewer water concerns for Napa Valley’s vintners. Tasting Notes A refined Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon not overshadowed by oak or overripe flavors. Well-defined fruit aromas and flavors of boysenberry and plum with great acidity and hints of earth and a touch of vanilla.
