Vintage 2010 welcomed the return of rainfall to the region with annual precipitation averaging about twenty percent above average. With few
exceptions, the growing season was slightly cooler than normal overall with ealthy grapevines appellation-wide. A heat spike at the end of August
accelerated ripening in some vineyards and helped deliver a harvest of fine quality.
For the 2010 blend, the largest portion of the blend came from several of our reserve vineyards — Bancroft Ranch Vineyard in the Howell Mountain AVA, the St. Helena Home Vineyard and Marston Vineyard on Spring Mountain, creat ing a blend that highlights the best of Napa Valley’s valley floor and mountain-top terroir. Grapes for the 2010 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon were picked from October 2nd to November 4th.
mouthfeel is dense and lush, with juicy red and blue berries and a rich structure.
