2016 Prominence Napa Valley Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon

Winemaker Notes

The 2016 Prominence Napa Valley Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon is a 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, with 60% of fruit from Stagecoach Vineyard and 40% from Spring Mountain. This barrel select wine was aged in 100% new French oak for 22 months. This wine offers up a combination of the power of Prichard Hill and the structure of Spring Mountain, while showing dark black cherry and cassis aromas, blanketed with spice and nutty notes. Full-bodied, this wine shows a veil of tannin layered on the juicy blackberry flavors. A fresh finish keeps this wine clean and tantalizing your palate. This wine has great aging potential and will reward by waiting 4 to 5 years. 

 

Harvest Notes

 

 

Heading into the fourth year of a prolonged drought, we had a warm, dry winter, which led to an early bud break in 2016. The growing season stayed ahead of normal through the entire season with no measurable rainfall until mid-October.  The Spring Mountain fruit was picked early in the morning on September 21st, while the Stagecoach fruit was harvest October 7th.
