Napa Valley is iconic for producing amazing California Cabernet Sauvignon, and our inaugural bottling lives up to that billing. This single-block beauty has a delicate nuance of raspberry, blackberry and stewed blueberry. The essence of nutmeg and cloves highlight the oak making this wine structured, yet soft, with integrated tannins. Rubia 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is vibrant in the glass, balanced and delivers a brilliant perspective of Calistoga Terroir.
This would be the last year that Thomas Rivers Brown was making the wine here (which, I guess, puts an end to that secret...)
