2018 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon The Messenger

The Messenger

SOLD OUT

True to the heart and style of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, this wine is rich and lush, with loads of delicious, dark fruit and a touch of French Oak spice. The texture is smooth, round and feels fresh. This wine is a joy to drink while young, juicy and vibrant but will also develop lovely complex characters over the next decade in the bottle.

Our vineyards span the valley and include the celebrated regions of St Helena, Yountville, Oakville, Coombsville and Oak Knoll. Cabernet Sauvignon is clearly the lead player in this wine and is ably supported with a dash of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot.

Enjoy our wine for what it is, an expression of the land that grew it and the hands that have touched it.

THIS MAY SOUND LIKE A BUNCH OF DRIVEL

Sauvignon Blanc is our ride or die. It somehow makes most food taste better, but it is seldom the star of the show. If you have a love for Sauvignon Blanc, the chances are you keep it to yourself. It doesn't demand attention the way some grape varietals do – “taste me and nothing else." Rather its flavors can satisfy with tropical notes when drinking it alone or fall back to soft velvets while you eat your favorite meal.

This wine is a soulful chameleon. Constantly changing to blend into the environment, yet if you take the time to notice... a stand-alone superior to most others.

100% fresh, aromatic, unburdened by oak, 2018 Lake County Sauvignon Blanc from the ancient, river flat vineyards around Kelseyville.

When you live and work in the Napa Valley you are surrounded by iconic vineyards, iconic wines and iconic people. One of those venerable locations is a spot of that sits at 38°26’13”N 122°24’4”W, roughly 1.3 square miles and situated in the middle of the valley - OAKVILLE Less than 100 people live in Oakville, but that’s ok - More room for iconic vineyards.

Lush, yet refined. Elegant, yet rustic. How do these opposites exist together? Open a bottle and find out.

2018 was a delightfully 'easy' year to grow grapes and make wine.  A good sized crop, moderate temperatures and an absence of natural disasters allowed us to make this fantastic wine. Tempting to drink soon with lashings of youthful exuberance and fresh fruit, it will also mature beautifully in the bottle over the next decade.  69% of this wine was matured in new French Oak and 31% in 1 year old French Oak. The total time in oak was 16 months.

88% Grenache
12% Teraldego

The Shenandoah Valley is a sleepy enclave in the Sierra Foothills. If you are not looking for it, you are unlikely to stumble across it. It isn’t far away, but it isn’t on the way to where you are likely going. That is fine with us. This is California’s Gold Country, but the gold today is harvested, not mined.

The warm days make this the perfect terroir for Grenache and Teraldego. Some of the world’s most expensive and celebrated wines are made from Grenache and it is easy to see why. Spicy, yet soft with notes of raspberry and white pepper linger and the trademark cinnamon are all present. The hint of pine is compliments of the Teraldego.
 
When these two grapes dance in your glass and across your tongue you will taste their perfect rhythm.

Syrah 90%
Tempranillo 10%

Go big or go home. This is the Lizzo of Syrah: big and rich with talent as far as the eye can see. The Sierra Foothills has turned out to be “the place“ to grow Syrah in the US. The conditions are perfect to allow this grape to ripen to perfection and the soil to add complexity and richness. This natural wonder has a little Tempranillo taking the wine to new heights of delicious.

Wine Grapes were introduced to the Sierra Foothills during the 19th century gold rush. What has evolved is a delightful eclectic collection of vineyards, dominated by growers who farm with old fashioned sensitivity for the land and environment.
