2016 Calistoga Cabernet Sauvignon
This small family vineyard is an exquisite terraced vineyard on the Palisades of Mt. St. Helena.
This beautifully balanced wine is showing all the attributes you might expect from Calistoga. A solid core of red and black fruit, some spice notes and a dried earthiness, distinct from the red earth you’ll find in Cabernet from this area. Chewy tannins are balanced with focused fruit wrapped in a delicate layer of baking spice and dried herb. Supple tannins on the finish suggest a hillside heritage.
94% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Merlot and 3% Petit Verdot.
Aged in 70% New French oak barrels, 30% neutral oak.
