Founded in 1977, Newton Vineyard is acclaimed for its pioneering spirit, exceptional quality and true terroir expression. All aspects of newton, from the meticulous winemaking practice to the winery design, reflect a commitment to realizing nature's full potential. Sourced from Napa county vineyards, our Red label wines are made in the Newton style to showcase purity of fruit. This vibrant Cabernet Sauvignon has luscious, intense fruit characters of black cherry and currant and is balanced with a touch of oak.
The terraced mountain estate has 120 acres planted at elevations ranging from 500 to 1,600 feet above sea level. Each of the 112 distinctive vineyard blocks is planted to a specific varietal — Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon or Petit Verdot. These parcels reflect distinct soil types, sun exposures and individual microclimates. The blocks are fermented separately to contribute complexity to the final blended wine. As with the red varietals, the diverse Chardonnay blocks are hand-picked and vinified separately, providing the winemaker with a rich palette from which to choose when blending Newton Vineyard wines. The blocks are set among the native vegetation to preserve the ecosystem of the hillside.
A tri-tip or other sturdy cut of beef rubbed with a coffee-fennel crust will be just the right dish to pull off the grill and serve with this wine. Game hen with a red wine pan sauce or pasta with a meaty tomato sauce will also make a delicious match.
