2000 Cabernet Sauvignon, St. Helena

Our first release—a 2000 Cabernet Sauvignon from the Napa Valley—is made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon grapes that come from a celebrated vineyard located along the Silverado Trail in St. Helena.  Southwest-facing, this vineyard is very well known for its voluptuous, silky red wines.  Our 2000 Cabernet Sauvignon is no exception.  Both complex and delicate, we love this wine for its inviting bouquet, its complex, unfolding body, and its lingering dancing on the palate.  Great color and nice tannins complete this vintage.  Overall, its elegance shines through exceedingly well!
