Notes from the Winemaker:
The NVD Cabernet Sauvignon is a classic Cabernet Sauvignon with some Mountain sass. The balance of tannins, minerality, acidity and intense fruit concentration hit all of the notes on the palate and leave you with a satisfyingly long finish. Sourced from vineyards at around 1600 feet of elevation in the Eastern Napa Mountains, this wine is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon aged 22 months in 75% new French oak.

Ratings & Reviews

95 Points – Jeb Dunnuck:
“All Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon NVD is a smoking value and comes from Pritchard Hill, Howell Mountain, and Calistoga. It spent 22 months in 75% new French oak. Cassis, black raspberries, violets, and floral notes all define the bouquet, and it’s medium to full-bodied, seamless, and incredibly polished, with terrific balance. It’s in the running for the best Napa Cab under $100.” (Mar 2022)

95 Points - Wine Advocate:
"Made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2019 NVD Cabernet Sauvignon is deep garnet-purple in color, giving up notes of black cherry preserves, baked plums and boysenberries with touches of cassis, spice box and dried mint. The palate is medium to full-bodied, firm and refreshing, delivering loads of red fruit sparks and a long, savory finish." - LPB (Nov 2021)

93 Points – Wine Spectator:
“Dark and winey, this Cabernet is packed with a mix of black currant paste, blackberry preserves and melted black licorice, all kept focused and defined thanks to a spine of graphite and a gilding of sweet spices. This will have lots of fans for sure. Drink now through 2036. 1,100 cases made.” – JM (Jul 2023)
