Combining all of our fruit sources, grown in a mixture of mineral-rich and loamy alluvial earth, as well as hillside vineyards near to St. Helena, we select our top barrels early in the aging process to produce a wine that delivers on the best of its sources, yet is accessible in its youth. The result is a concoction of blackcurrants, spiced black cherries, sweet pipe tobacco, purple flowers, and vanilla cream that is too good to be missed. Expect to find a real winemaker’s wine – balanced and powerful too.

"Lots of juicy redcurrants, blueberries, and wildflower notes define the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Jurisprudence, a fresher, juicy, unevolved Cabernet. Including 1% Cabernet Franc sourced from St. Helena, Rutherford, Oakville, and Napa, aged 20 months in 60% new French oak, this full-bodied, elegant wine is going to benefit from 2-4 years of bottle age and should keep nicely for 15-20 years." - 1/27/2021

"This big red is concentrated in blue fruit and thick tannins, the oak dominant and seasoned in vanilla, clove, and tobacco. Earthy dust, cedar and pencil shaving accents contrast well against the textured intensity and ripeness of the wine." - 3/1/2021
