  • Vintage Report

    • “Classic” and “perfect” are just two accolades being bestowed upon the 2012 Napa Valley growing season and harvest. Textbook conditions saw near-ideal spring budbreak, steady flowering, even fruit-set, and a lengthy stretch of warm days and cool and often foggy nights during the long summer months. Late and light rains held off until Napa Valley’s treasured wine grapes found optimal ripeness, bringing exceptional quality to the crush pad and into the cellar. – Napa Valley Vintners Napa Valley Harvest Report 2012

  • Cabernet Sauvignon Route 29, Napa Valley – 2012 – 89 points – Wine Enthusiast

    “…this well-constructed Cab offers herbal blackberry and dark raspberry fruit around a core of soft tannins. It has a touch of grip to the finish, which is accented in richly roasted coffee. The addition of…Merlot helps soften the overall picture.”
