A classic Old World style Napa Valley Cabernet in the style when Cabernets were all about terroir and a great food wine. Its moderate alcohol level allows the wine to show off its flavors, structure and acidity. It is a wine with a linear structure that clearly defines its presence.

Tasting Notes

A wine made to reflects the winemaking style of Grandfather Pietro as well as wines of Napa in the 80’s & 90’s- tightly structured and layered with fruit. Wild blackberry and earthy, with a touch of tobacco and leather. The tannins are well integrated, making the wine very approachable. A great food wine!

The Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot were grown at a 700 foot elevation in Pope Valley, Napa Valley. The Petit Verdot is from the O’Connell Family Estate Vineyard in the Oak Knoll District of Napa Valley Appellation.

Food Pairing

A great wine for everyday sipping and casual dinners. Try with a juicy burger, grilled tri-tip, BBQ chicken, cassoulet and lasagna.
