Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
A classic Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon with a mix of fruit, forest floor and subtle herbaceous aromas on the nose. On the palate, dark cherry, plum and cassis notes blend with green olive, tea, earth and spice. Round and supple, with lingering fruit flavors and a base of soft tannin, this wine promises to be one of great complexity.
Vineyard Notes
The 25-acre Quarry Vineyard climbs the slopes above the Silverado Trail on the east side of Rutherford. The name comes from the old quarry that was the source of a white rock used in the ghost winery that still stands beside the vineyard. Three distinct hillside blocks, each experiencing its own unique soil and exposure, are harvested from this vineyard. The white, rocky loam soils are well drained, and the vines are of moderate vigor. Cluster and berry size varies from block to block, but all are small to moderate. This vineyard has full exposure to the afternoon sun.
