Three Bottle Sampler Trio – 2012, 2012 and 2013 Cabernet
2012 Mt. Veeder cabernet: Our 2012 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon comes from the 20 acre Crouse Vineyard in the Mount Veeder Appellation of Napa Valley – one of the Napa Valley’s most unique and compelling appellations. The vines are nearly 30 years old and cared for by sustainable farming done by hand.
2012 Diamond Mountain cabernet: The 2012 growing season was one the best in recent history for Napa Valley, considered a classic vintage. An ideal spring provided near perfect conditions to start off the season followed by a long, sunny summer with no heat waves. The fall rains held off late into the harvest season enabling a long slow ripening.
The grapes were sourced from Constant Vineyard located in the Diamond Mountain appellation of Napa Valley situated at over 2100 feet elevation, one of the highest vineyards in Napa Valley. Due to the shallow soils the vineyard is farmed to very low yields per acre.
Decant this wine for 30- minutes before serving to accentuate the maximum fruit aromas and flavor profiles of this very age-worthy wine.
2013 Stagecoach cabernet: This is a very vibrant wine from an incredibly successful year upon the famed Stagecoach Mountain property, located East of the Silverado Trail. Developed in the early 1990’s by legendary grape grower, Jan Krupp, our hearty cabernet vines are grown at an elevation of 1200+ feet above the Napa Valley floor, in the Atlas Peak district. The difficult, and incredibly rocky and often steep terrain makes for amazingly complex and multidimensional wines known for their sharp sophistication and longevity in the wine cellar.
