The grapes for this wine come from Longhorn Ridge Vineyard’s Hoffman Block in the eastern part of the valley very close to the Atlas Peak AVA. Neighboring vineyard grapes are used in Caymus Special Select and we are very near to Pahlmeyer’s Waters Ranch. The vineyard is only 8 acres and is on a rolling slope, riddled with granite deposits and produces very small grapes the size of an English pea. Because the yields are so small (less than 2 tons per acre), we only produce a limited amount of wine each year.
VARIETALS: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon
APPELLATION: Napa Valley
This single vineyard Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is a deep dark inky purple color which proceeds the rich cassis aromas that are replete with baking spices and dark chocolate cacao. The palate is super concentrated and deep, with sappy rich with ripe black cherry, cassis and sweet, deep and juicy boysenberry with spicy tannins of cinnamon and all spice. The wine finishes complete with balanced acid over tannins and deep fruit notes and flavors. This wine is very approachable now in its youth, but will age gracefully through 2040 and beyond. This wine is clearly a cellar candidate from an exceptional vintage. We only produced a couple hundred cases so this will be a rare, short offering.
