Cabernet Blends  |  US


Tucked far off the main roads of Napa, nestled in the eastern foothills just below Howell Mountain, this long-time family run vineyard has been stomping grounds for some of Napa’s brightest stars. Planted in 1996, the winery’s founding winemaker Celia Welch(Scarecrow and countless others ) handed the reins over to Mike Hirby (Realm, Behrens & Hitchcock, Relic) back in 2010. Vineyard Manager extraordinaire Mike Wolf (Harlan, Bond and more) set up the vineyards before turning the keys over to the Piña Family (who specialize in hillside vineyards on Napa’s Vaca Range like this.) All things are in place for this surreal value of vinous pleasure to just leave you floored with shock and delight.

This is your classic Napa cabernet sauvignon – sexy, plush and velvety with ripe blackberry notes and warm spiced plum overtones. Secondary notes of tobacco, coffee beans and cocoa powder showcase spectacular finesse and the finish just pulls you in, wraps you up and never lets go. This is a steal, even at full retail. At a mere half of that…what more could you possibly want in a Napa cabernet?
