For the Quilt Napa Valley, 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 along with high elevation in the 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, Oak Knoll, Calistoga, and Howell Mountain.
WINEMAKER NOTES
For Napa Valley Quilt Cabernet Sauvignon, the winemaking process started by picking fruit at optimum physiological maturity; lignified seeds and canes, a slight dimpling of the berries (dehydration) and once in the cellar, we kept wine lots separated by individual vineyard. The wine went from cold soak to extended maceration for up to 60 days in some cases, and we re-evaluated the progress of each lot before moving the wine to classic Bordeaux and Burgundy barrels (70% new oak) where it underwent malolactic fermentation, and was racked every 4 to 6 months until blending 20 months later.
TASTING NOTES
COLOR: Dark plum with cherry highlights.
AROMAS: Abundant aromas of tart blackberry, chocolate nibs, and cassis with hints of culinary herbs and lightly toasted oak.
PALATE: Rich and satisfying with flavors of boysenberry jam, black cherry pie filling, and cocoa layered with notes of vanilla and hazelnut. Full yet elegant on the palate, with strong acidity and a long, smooth finish accompanied by velvety tannins.
