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
"Ripe and focused, with a core of raspberry, mulberry and black currant pâte de fruit notes that meld nicely with singed apple wood, dried anise and red tea nuances through the chaparral-tinged finish. Still a bit reserved in feel and progressing slowly -- hallmarks of the vintage. Best from 2024 through 2036." ~ Wine Spectator "…showed brilliantly, with lots of cassis, tobacco, and cedary spice aromatics as well as medium to full-bodied richness. Made from 100% Cabernet aged 26 months in new oak, it's balanced and has wonderful freshness, no hard edges, and a great finish. It's going to keep for 15-20 years." ~ Jeb Dunnuck "This brawny wine offers a big structure of firm tannins and full body packed with deep blackberries and dark plums that fill it out well. It is lightly oaked, relying mostly on ripe fruit to power its expression." ~ Wine Enthusiast
