RATINGS

96The Wine Advocate

...features baked black cherries, warm cassis, preserved plums and potpourri with touches of tilled soil, garrigue, earth and tobacco plus a touch of bacon. Full, very firm and grainy, it's packed with black fruit and savory layers with seamless freshness, finishing long.

91Vinous / IWC

Mocha, black cherry, plum, licorice, tobacco, dark chocolate and French oak infuse the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate. This is a decidedly dark, intense, powerful Cabernet Sauvignon...

PRODUCER

Vineyard Seven And Eight

Vineyard 7 & 8 in St. Helena was started in 1999 by Launny and Weezie Steffens, a New Jersey couple with an interest in wine. Launny founded a New York investment firm but was intrigued by winemaking. The estate’s vineyards are at 2,000 feet above sea level on Spring Mountain. Winemakers are Martha McClellan and Wesley Steffens. The two estate wines are a Chardonnay and a Cabernet Sauvignon. Vineyard 7 & 8 also makes a Cab sourced partly from the estate and partly from the Atchey Family Vineyard next door.

REGION

United States, California, Napa Valley, Spring Mountain District

Spring Mountain AVA is above the town of St. Helena on the eastern slopes of the Mayacamas Mountains. There is no actual Spring Mountain, but the name has traditionally been used for the area, which includes many streams and springs. Spring Mountain was awarded appellation status in 1993 and it includes about 1,000 vineyard acres. Vineyard elevations are high, from 400 to 2,600 feet above sea level. Because of the altitude of most vineyards, which are above the fog line, mornings become warm earlier than vineyards on the valley floor, though the afternoons are cooled by maritime winds. The result is an exceptionally long growing season. Cabernet Sauvignon is the most frequently planted grape by acreage, followed by Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Chardonnay.

TYPE

Red Wine, Cabernet Sauvignon

One of the most widely grown grape varieties, it can be found in nearly every wine growing region. A cross between Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc. It’s a hardy vine that produces a full-bodied wine with high tannins and great aging potential.
