About This Wine:
The Signature Cabernet Sauvignon has been our flagship wine for more than four decades.  It is a benchmark for the long-lived hillside wines of the Napa Valley; full of structure and aging potential, yet seductively forward in its concentrated varietal character.  The dry, rocky soils of Pritchard Hill produce small, intensely flavorful grapes.  Crop thinning allows for full, even ripening and further elevates flavor complexity.

Tasting Notes:

The depth and complexity that mark the spectacular 2009 growing season are fully on display in this wine, with head-turning aromatics of black currant, raspberry, cherry, plum and violet leaping out of the glass before revealing subtler notes of cola, cinnamon, clove, espresso, cocoa and anise. On the palate, the tannins are large, yet velvety, supporting voluptuous layers of blackberry pie, boysenberry, Bing cherry, bramble, cassis, rum raisin and baking spices. Oak-inspired notes of caramelized brown sugar and molasses add additional nuance, while leading to a plush, lingering finish.

Vineyard Notes:

Though rainfall was little more than two-thirds of normal for the third year in a row, the timing of the precipitation was on the vines’ side, as late spring rains delayed irrigation needs. June, July and August were cool, but September was quite warm, which helped the fruit reach complete maturity. A large storm hit in mid-October, but all of our grapes were harvested before the rains. Overall, an ideal growing season on Pritchard Hill.
