Robert Craig’s winemaking philosophy is that Cabernet Sauvignons should be made with minimal intervention, so that unique vineyard qualities are displayed in the finished wine. Distinguished by concentrated varietal character, appealing aromas and intense fruit flavors, these Cabernets are balanced, integrated and luscious upon release, while offering great potential for long-term aging. The Robert Craig Winery is located at 2300 atop Howell Mountain, overlooking Napa Valley. The winemaking regimen is undertaken with great care and attention to detail. Each vineyard block is monitored as harvest approaches to assure the proper degree of ripeness, and grapes are picked in small lots. Individual lots are processed separately during fermentation in order to maximize color and character development and closely manage the influence of tannin. Frequent pump-overs in early fermentation produce full extraction of the fruit while providing ripe, round tannins. This small-lot format expands the blending options, allowing for fine-tuning of the wine style. All Cabernets are aged in French oak barrels to gain added complexity. Read less

My best friend and I shared a bottle of this the other night for our birthday. Fabulous! Really opens up after you let it breath. Complex & rich with taste of black cherry. I'm going out to get more!
