Description

This appellation designated bottling is sourced from four prestigious vineyard sites in Napa Valley renowned for their impeccable farming and history of producing some truly remarkable Cabernet Sauvignon. Deftly blended by Head Winemaker Blair Fox, the Addendum Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon represents a perfect marriage of these four vineyards and their unique terroirs.

As the largest percentage of this appellation blend, Clos du Val’s purity of fruit, ideal acidity and velvety tannins make for a well balanced foundation beautifully backed by Round Pond’s richness and characteristic Rutherford dust earthiness. Stagecoach Vineyard contributes added power and structure with its concentrated fruit, firm tannins and classic mountain Cabernet influence while Rutherford AVA rounds out the blend with further elegance, depth and complexity.

Wine Critic Reviews
"...soft, plush and inviting. Dark cherry, plum, mocha and licorice all open up in this easygoing, tasty Napa Valley Cabernet. All the elements fall into place so nicely. In fact, the appellation Cabernet is my favorite wine in the range." ~ Antonio Galloni's Vinous "...has a pretty, classic Cabernet nose of darker fruits, tobacco, sappy green herbs, and cedarwood. Nicely textured, medium-bodied, and elegant on the palate, this beautifully done Cabernet excels in this difficult vintage." ~ Jeb Dunnuck
