The heady aromatics and sun-drenched fruit flavors of “The Point” are inspired by this lofty view. Everything about the 2017 ‘The Point’ cabernet evokes the simmering hot summer days up here on the mountain. There is something ‘melted’ about this wine. The leading aroma is dominated by melted black and red licorice candy smells followed up by super-ripe or sun-baked blackberries. The oak contributes a vanilla extract headiness to the fruit and spice. 

The nose of our 2017 "The Point" opens with layers of dense and ripe bramble fruit and progresses into notes of rich blackberry cobbler. As the nose continues to develop, further notes of graphite, black pepper, and olive leaf are framed by dark mocha and vanilla notes. The palate is dense and chewy with layers of velvety tannins, and carries a decadent juiciness which is supported by a firmly textured backbone. The finish is long and supple, and ends with a sensation of mouth coating cocoa powder.

Vineyard Notes

Wine lots and barrels selected for “The Point” Cabernet Sauvignon don’t necessarily come from a particular spot on the estate (à la Vineyard Designate), but rather share common flavor and structural attributes that highlight explosive fruit, spic wood, mouth-filling tannins, and alcoholic warmth. Most of you have visited the winery and taken the walk out to look over the Napa Valley from our promontory. The heady aromatics and sun-drenched fruit flavors of “The Point” are inspired by this lofty view.
