GOTT Napa Valley

2017 Cabernet Sauvignon
Napa Valley
  • Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec and Petit Verdot

  • We selected our Cabernet Sauvignon fruit from hillside vines in southeast Napa, as well as the esteemed Knights Valley AVA in Sonoma County. Our Cabernet fruit from Sugarloaf Vineyard in Napa brought power, weight and well-structured tannins to the wine. The Cabernet grapes at St. Helena’s Crocker-Talcott Vineyard added a soft, red fruit character, while Petit Verdot from Crocker-Talcott lent spicy undertones, a rich mouthfeel and complexity to the blend. We chose Malbec fruit from Knights Valley for its power, structure and well-balanced acidity.

  • 92% new French oak, 8% 1-year-old French oak
