2018 Napa Valley: A Stellar Year for Cabernet Sauvignon

The 2018 vintage in Napa Valley emerged as a standout year for our Cabernet Sauvignon wines, marked by ideal growing conditions that yielded exceptional quality and depth.

Throughout the growing season, moderate temperatures prevailed, allowing for slow, even ripening of the grapes. This extended hang time on the vine contributed to the development of rich flavors and balanced acidity, characteristic of our signature varietals.

Early in the season, abundant winter rains replenished groundwater, providing essential hydration for the vines during the warmer months. This ensured healthy vine growth and optimal grape development without excessive stress.

The moderate weather continued through harvest, allowing us to pick the grapes at peak maturity, with fully developed flavors and optimal sugar levels.

As a result, our 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits pronounced aromas of dark fruits, and rich well rounded-tannin, while our Reserve Cabernet showcases a refined elegance with complex layers of ripe fruit, integrated tannins, and a lingering finish.

Overall, the 2018 vintage stands as a testament to the exceptional quality of Napa Valley terroir and our commitment to crafting wines of distinction.
