... intense, forward fruit and more floral/savory overtones that are woven throughout. Iron, smoke, red cherry, pomegranate and dried flowers open up in the glass, before the firm Hayne tannins kick in...

Lots of blackcurrant fruit, tart acids, and a medium to full-bodied mouthfeel are impressive in this young, vibrant, age-worthy Cabernet Sauvignon...

An elegant, tapered style, with dusty berry, cedar, anise and dried herb flavors. A well-proportioned Napa Cabernet that ends with a pleasant hint of dusty soil and olive.


United States, California, Napa Valley, St. Helena

St. Helena AVA is at the northern end of Napa Valley just north of Rutherford and south of Calistoga. It is a relatively warm climate thanks to the Mayacamas Mountains on its western edge, which protect it from Pacific Ocean fog. Out of the 9,000 acres in the appellation, some 1,500 are under vine. The principal grapes grown in St. Helena are the Bordeaux grapes of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. St. Helena is considered prime wine producing territory, and it was one of the first important wine producing regions in northern California. The legendary Charles Krug founded his winery just north of the town of St. Helena in 1873, and today the appellation is home to many prestigious producers, including Abreu, Grace Family and Spottswoode.


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.
