Description

“FOR NAPA VALLEY QUILT, I SOURCE FRUIT FROM A PATCHWORK OF PRIME NAPA VALLEY VINEYARDS TO CREATE A CLASSIC CABERNET SAUVIGNON MADE IN THE WAY

MY FAMILY HAS ALWAYS LOVED.”

JOSEPH WAGNER, FIFTH-GENERA TION NAP A VALLEY WINEMAKER

NAPA VALLEY CABERNET SAUVIGNON 2015

For the 2014 Quilt Napa Valley, our first release of this wine, we focused on vineyards with well-draining, low-nutritive soils that stress the vines. The result of these soils is a

grape crop with extraordinary concentration of flavor, color and texture. While the majority of the fruit comes from the floor of the Napa Valley to achieve the richness and

elegance desired, we also relied on some grapes grown in the well-drained gravelly soils of the side slopes and at low elevations in the more mountainous areas for a blend with

more structure and complexity than we could have achieved had we used fruit grown solely in a single region. Napa Valley AVAs: Oakville, St. Helena, Atlas Peak, Coombsville,

Calistoga, and Howell Mountain.

TASTING NOTES

COLOR: Deep, dark brick red to blood plum

AROMAS: A seamless blend of crème de cassis, hazelnut, cocoa, blackberry preserves, charry meat, and blackberry pie along with suggestions of dark licorice, stewed rhubarb, strawberry,

spice and vanillin.

PALATE: Rich and satisfying with chocolate brownie, yogurt, molasses, brown sugar and rhubarb notes presented in perfect balance with higher-toned fruit emphasis.

Alcohol 15%

FOOD PAIRING

Cowboy-cut, grilled rib eye steak with béarnaise sauce; lamb chops with balsamic reduction; or a charcuterie platter with smoked duck breast, dry-cured pork sausage,

figs, pecans and sliced apple.
