Top Tier Gift Set
For those looking for a more elevated gift option, our Top Tier Gift Set features two exceptional Cabernet Sauvignons. The Napa Valley Cabernet is age-worthy, complex and the perfect pairing for rich, holiday meals. The Phoenix Vineyard Cabernet is grown right next to our winery. Planted in 1982, the steep hillside and narrow rows require most work to be done by hand, and the resulting wine is a show-stopper.
Each gift set includes:
● One 750ml bottle 2018 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
● One 750ml bottle 2018 Phoenix Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon
● One black gift box
● Gift note
● Ground shipping to the continental United States
About our Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon:
In the tradition of Cabernet sauvignon, ours includes a small amount of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, and is blended from six vineyards throughout the Napa Valley. The three AVAs are Coombsville for structure and black fruit, Rutherford for savory Cabernet characters and bright fruit, and Oak Knoll for soft fruit.
The nose shows abundant red fruits, lots of bright cherry along with bramble-berries, such as blackberry, cranberry, mulberry, and framed with hints of mineral/herbal characters such as graphite, cedar, and pencil shavings. The palate is vibrant and fresh, with light tannin and beautiful acidity. Decanting is highly recommended.
About our Phoenix Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon:
The Phoenix Vineyard was planted back in 1982 on the steep hillside above our winery. It is a mix of old heritage field selections of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Merlot. When we took over the vineyard in 2017, we converted to Organic Farming, planted new vines where some of the old vines had given up, and focused on rejuvenating the old vines with compost and pruning.
The steep hillside and narrow rows require most work to be done by hand—even the compost is applied with shovels and wheelbarrows, that task alone takes two weeks. It’s a challenging vineyard to farm but it’s worth it. The resulting wine is singular enough, yet complete enough, to be worthy of a single vineyard designation.
The 2018 will reward long aging, or enjoyment young with a meal after a little decanting.
