Winemaker Notes

Barrels: 100% French, 45% New

Barrel Aging: 28 Months


“2017 was the first post-drought vintage after a string of five dry years. Abundant winter rainfall led to strong growth in the vineyards. It was an ideal growing season up until we experienced some high heats in September. e full canopies of the vines were essential in providing shade for the fruit to fully ripen. Despite the dark cloud of the October fires this year, these grapes were harvested prior and are untouched by smoke. is vintage is a genuine and classic example of a beautiful and fair Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon.”

– Second Generation Proprietor Lindsay Hoopes
