Wine Maker Notes
Grapes for the Napa Cellars 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon are carefully selected from a collection of prime Napa Valley vineyards in desirable regions including St. Helena, Rutherford and Oak Knoll. The Napa Cellars winemaking team believes the land – or terroir – shapes the balance, complexity, aroma and flavor of their wine and the Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon stands as a testament to that belief. Napa Cellars produces wines that express their place of origin – each vineyard imparts complex and unique characteristics, the final blend captures a beautiful display of signature Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon.
