“Dark garnet violet black color. Elegant aromas and flavors of creamy chocolate, pistachio nougat, cassis pie, and clay with a supple, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a graceful, nutty, peppery spice, vanilla cream, and earth accented finish. Very pure, balanced and nicely restrained fruit and oak.”

Winemaker Notes

“Working with Cabernet from Frog Tree and Carpignano vineyards in Coombsville along with Salvador and Linda Vista vineyards in Oak Knoll, the Apex showcases the best of Napa Valley. Consisting of 91% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot and 2% Malbec, the wine exhibits deep blackberry, cherry and a touch of cassis carried across a broad, dense and velvety palate. Subtle notes of earth and fall spice are just emerging and the wine shows fantastic focus and breadth with beautifully polished and fine tannin on a persistent finish. Decant for a day and enjoy with your most complex, richest meats or exercise your patience and cellar it for a decade to allow it to fully evolve into its own.”
