We strive to act instead of react. We practice patience through careful observation. We aim for balance and equilibrium between fruit expression, texture, and acidity.

Cabernet Sauvignon grapes are harvested at the exact moment of optimal maturity to retain freshness. Winemaking is a respectful dance with nature that requires an open mind, attention to detail, and mindfulness of the land and its bounty in any growing season.

98 points — “The personal project of winemaker Chris Phelps of Inglenook. Since his days at Dominus in the 1990s, he continues to show a deft hand with Cabernet Sauvignon. Grapes are sourced entirely from the Sleeping Lady vineyard in Yountville. Seductively fresh, giving up earth, black fruit, dried thyme and brown baking spices with hints of tobacco. Full-bodied on entry, striking a lovely balance between saturated black and blue-toned fruit with savoury wild herbs, conifer and earth, just hinting at spearmint, and bolstered by fine-grained tannins and a firm acid backbone. Long, layered and cellar worthy.”
