It wasn’t too long ago when we just called it “Napa Valley.” It didn’t matter if you were referring to land in Calistoga, Rutherford, or south of the town of Napa, it was all one valley, a patchwork of farms intermixed with vineyards.

A beautifully rich, almost opaque purple color with flavors and aromas of sun-dried cherry, cassis, black olive, and cacao followed by dried herb or tea and a touch of vanilla. The wine is youthfully grippy, yet will benefit from a little time… or a trip to the decanter and a nice dry-aged ribeye.

Dense purple hue with alluring aromas of blue/blackberry, cherry, plum and notes of bay laurel, graphite, and sandalwood. A well balanced wine with a round, silky mid-palate that finishes with a core of firm tannin. Delicious now and for the foreseeable future.

Braised beef ribs are a natural match for the refreshing brightness of the SLD Cabernet Sauvignon and Marcien.
