Tasting Notes:

β€œDeep indigo color leads to lavish aromas of dark plum and red raspberry fruit. A restrained rush of racy dark fruit coats the palette highlighting nuanced flavors of green olive, leather, and warm barrel spice. Balanced acidity and polished tannins should allow the wine to age beautifully for 15-20 years.”

Vineyard Notes:

This Cabernet Sauvignon features a new vineyard for us – the Renteria 360 Vineyard in the Oakville AVA. The vineyard lies at the northwest border of the Oakville appellation with Rutherford just off the Silverado Trail. Warmer than most Oakville locations, the vineyard shows classic and serious Oakville valley floor characteristics, however its location on the Rutherford border adds some enigmatic dustiness and earth to the fruit.

Winemaker Notes:

The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon is also the first Cabernet made for us by our new winemaker, Kale Anderson. Kale has the distinction of being one of the youngest winemakers in Napa to be awarded a 100-point score by the Wine Advocate for his work at Pahlmeyer and he brings his unique and focused style to Longfellow. This wine is unlike any we have made in past vintages – utilizing a long cold soak to optimize the extraction and aged in 100% new French oak barrels for over 22 months.
