The color of this wine is striking, its deep blue-red bue making it impossible to see the bottom of the glass. The nose is unmistakably Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon: dense red raspberries, wild backberries, chocolate, and a warm toasty essence are packed tightly into this full-bodied red.
Grown in rocky riverbed soils with minimal supplemental irrigation other than natural winter rainfall, this wine clearly displays the distinct gravely terroir of the Weir Family Vineyard. The palate, like the nose, has a compact structure but softens in the finish. The addition of 10% Cabernet Franc enhances not only the finish but creates a robust, fruity mid-palate.
