For years, the grapes from our estate vineyard have been under contract and gone into one of Napa Valley’s finest Meritage blends. For Premiere, we are excited to offer the very first bottling from this estate vineyard under the Maroon label, a 2009 Reserve 100% Cabernet Sauvignon.
This property is located in a sweet spot for growing Cabernet Sauvignon. It enjoys slightly cooler temperatures than the northern part of the valley, which allows the grapes to hang longer and reach the perfect balance of sugar and acidity.
The resulting wine is very complex, well-balanced and delicious with dark berry fruit, mocha and coffee aromas, medium-weight tannins, a rich core and a long finish. It will age well for 12 to 15 years.
Aged in French oak barrels (50% new) for 24 months
