Backstage wines are super premium Napa Valley wines from this family-owned winery. Production is extremely small from their own single vineyards, aged in carefully selected French oak barrels for the Allier, Nevers, Tronçais and Vosges forests in France.This wine is from their Howell Mountain vineyard at an altitude of 1400 feet. Yields are kept exceedingly low, only about 1.5 tons per acre. The grapes ripen slowly due to the diurnal temperature shift from day to night in this mountain vineyard and the long hang time lets these bold Cabernet Sauvignon grapes take on layered complexity. The wine is aged 12 months in French oak barrels.This Cab was awarded a Gold Medal and 92 Points in the American Fine Wine Competition. This shows aromas of ripe mountain berries, deep dark currants and elegant floral notes, expressing itself in a dusty, earthy, minerality in the nose. On the palate, it has silky tannins and vibrant fruit flavors of black currants, black cherry, blackberry preserves…
