Notes from the Winemaker:
Dedicated to working in harmony with nature to produce remarkable artisan wines, Newton Vineyard transforms fruit of uncompromised quality into wines of distinctive character.

Vineyard:
The fruit used to make our Red Label wines is sourced from select vineyards throughout Napa Valley, from Los Carneros to Chiles Valley. Every year, we select grapes with a specific characteristic that will allow us to achieve the desired flavor profile of the final blend and create continuity vintage to vintage.

Vintage Conditions:
The 2011 vintage was marked by cool temperatures, which offered the luxury of allowing the grapes to hang for a long time without becoming over ripe. The yields were lower with small berries that had intense colors and bright fruit flavors, resulting in concentrated flavors in the finished wine.

Vinification

We begin our winemaking work in our vineyards, cultivating the vines using sustainable farming techniques and following nature’s lead as the growing season unfolds. Once in the winery, we use a cold soak method and extended maceration to provide complexity in the finished wine. After aging the wine for 12 months in French oak barrels, we masterfully create a blend with balance.

Tasting Notes

The 2011 vintage of our Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon has beautiful aromas of cocoa powder, dried rose petals and toasted oak. Red plum, cherry and boysenberry flavors share the palate with hints of black pepper and a medley of herbs, all of which linger on the finish.

Food Pairing:
A wine made for all seasons, this Cabernet is equally delicious with grilled steak topped with chimichurri sauce as it with chicken simmered in mole sauce. Two of our favorite dishes are braised short ribs and pan-roasted pork chops.

Serving and Cellaring: Drink this wine in its youth or let it age in the bottle for five to seven years.
