Napa Wine Company Cabernet Sauvignon 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

VineyardsThe backbone of the Cabernet Sauvignon is the fruit we harvested from our Rock Cairn vineyard; 32 acres uniquely nestled below the western hills of Oakville. Also planted to 32 acres is our Mill Race Vineyard. It is sheltered by the Yountville Hills to the west and is situated just below the border of the Oakville appellation to the north. All of our vineyards are 100% Organically Grown and located in Oakville and Yountville, Napa Valley.Tasting NotesThe Napa Wine Company 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon epitomizes the classic style of Napa Valley wines. This is a lush Cabernet with intense aromas of black raspberry, hazelnut and cinnamon bark. In the mouth, the flavors are rich and fruit focused. Ripe currant and blackberry integrate nicely with the toasted oak flavors. The wine has a silky texture that finishes with a long persistent aftertaste. Drink now through 2012.Varietal Content 100% Cabernet SauvignonVineyards 85% Rock Cairn, Oakville15% Mill Race, YountvilleAlcoholic Content 14.6%Total Acidity 0.60%pH 3.78Residual Sugar 0.07%Cooperage Aged 24 months in 100% French Oak, 60% New French OakWinemakerRob LawsonRelease Information 313 cases, May 2008

The Company is committed to growing grapes without the use of chemicals. Certified by the California Certified Organic Farmers, Napa Wine Company uses organic vineyard management techniques. Selective leaf and shoot removal reduces fungus and mildew pressure. Cover crops like oats, peas, mustard and vetch, are planted between rows to naturally inhibit soil erosion, reduce dust, restore nutrients and encourage microbiological activity. Even grape skins and stems are composted after harvest and added back to the soil, replenishing nitrogen and potassium and increasing microbiological activity. Read less
