2019 parched. Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

$40.00 /750ml

Winemaker Notes

The 2019 parched. Cabernet Sauvignon is a Bordeaux blend consisting of 87% Cabernet Sauvignon 9% Cabernet Franc and 4% Merlot. The fruit for this wine is sourced throughout the Napa Valley with a good mix of mountain fruit along with valley floor fruit. The wine exhibits a dark, inky red color, with notes of black berry and cassis on the nose. Layered well with spice and toasty oak, this medium to full bodied wine will be quite pleasant from the start but will reward short term cellaring.

Harvest Notes

The 2019 growing season was seeded with some Spring rain that helped keep everything green until Memorial Day. We had a heat spike in June, and one more in August, but other than that we were treated to relatively nice weather, with cool mornings, leading to warm afternoons. Harvest was completed in multiple passes, starting October 1st and the final pick occurred on October 24th.
