About This Wine:
Our Mt. George Cuvee comes from the same estate vineyard in the Mt. George foothills of southeastern Napa Valley where grapes are grown for Affinity, our flagship Bordeaux-style Cabernet. Made to the same high standards as Affinity, this Left-Bank inspired blend is crafted from very small quantities of the best juice remaining after the Affinity blend components are selected. These choice lots are aged in French oak for added texture, refinement and complexity. Each year, the Cuvee’s varietal components vary according to the blending program. The 2010 vintage is a nicely balanced, supple Cabernet, with abundant dark fruit. Considered one of Napa Valley’s best $30 Cabernets selections, this is a wine to be enjoyed with friends and family -- the perfect choice for all occasions.

Vineyard Notes:

Our estate vineyard is located to the south of the Stag’s Leap district in the Mt. George foothills. This area produces Cabernets that are similar to the Left Bank region of Bordeaux – yet is very unique in its own right. The gravely, well-drained soils and moderate climate are ideal for growing the classic Bordeaux varietals, giving us small, intensely flavored berries.
