Old-fashioned Napa Cabernet from very up-to-date, but respectful of history, wine growers working in Napa's Soda Canyon. The vines grow on terraces up the side of the Canyon and get minimal water and no chemical fertilizers or herbicides. The natural vineyard work continues in the winery (6000 sq ft of caves quarried to build the winery house) where the wines rest until ready to release.
The Laureate Cabernet comes from the highest elevation Cabernet vines and opens with youthful aromas of red currant, tobacco leaf, fresh herb, eucalyptus and coffee. In the mouth it's rich and bright with plenty of red fruit and spice. The finish is long, persistent and firm with ripe fruit flavors lingering nicely. Tasty now and better over the next decade plus.
