Notes from the Winemaker:
Instantly appealing with abundant blueberry fruit with beetroot, couverture, licorice and black olives. The palate is soft rich and round with dark chocolate, satsuma plums and crème de cassis providing a plump and fleshy middle balanced by a creamy, savory and fine velvety structure with great persistence with layers of flavor and texture.

Established in 1973 on the lower slopes and foothills of the Mayacamas Mountains directly above the town of Yountville in the heart of the Napa Valley region. This celebrated site is unique in the combination of alluvial valley floor and rocky foothills with a predominantly eastern aspect at between 150-350 feet in altitude. The principle moderating influence on the local climate is the heavy fogs that linger until late in the morning providing a cooling influence as it flows south down the valley to the San Pablo Bay. The wines represent classical Napa Cabernet with rich bold and round flavors, dark chocolate and a silky rich mouth filling structure.
The 2014 Yountville was a selection of blocks 304, 311, 312 with an average vine age of 18 years. Once harvested, the grapes were hand-sorted to inspect individual berries. The must was then fermented in separate lots and barrel aged for 12 months before being blended and returned to barrel for further maturation. 740 cases produced.

Ratings & Reviews

95 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Yountville sports a deep garnet-purple color and is scented of blackberry preserves, cassis and preserved plums with a very spicy undercurrent of cinnamon toast and fired Indian spices plus wafts of bay leaf and cigar box. Medium to full-bodied and built like a brick house, the palate gives firm, chewy tannins and seamless freshness, supporting the berry preserves and spicy layers, finishing with great persistence." - Lisa Perrotti-Brown (Oct 2017)

95 Points - James Suckling:

"A wonderful young Napa cab with ultra-fine tannins that go on for minutes. Lots of licorice, mint and blackcurrant character. Medium to full body. Reserve and refined finish. Better in 2018." - (January 26, 2017)
