Joseph Carr Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Red Hills 2009
We always strive to make balanced, sophisticated, yet approachable Bordeaux style blends with both our Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot offerings. By blending a trilogy of grapes from where they grow best, referred to as “Trois Cépages”, acknowledges my dedication to winemaking. These wines reflect the unique terroir of the Napa Valley and are traditionally blended together with Cabernet Franc and, at times, Petit Verdot.
