Just an excellent Cabernet from Clark-Claudon Vineyards and the winemaking team of Frederic Delivert and Jean Hoefliger (Alpha Omega Winery). A medium-bodied and elegant Howell Mountain wine from a tough growing year where a late spring frost claimed 50% of the fruit. The wine opens with a rich nose of black cherry enhanced with notes of cedar. The palate is caressed with black cherry, blackberry, cedar and ripe plum supported by integrated tannins and food friendly acidity. Give this lovely a couple of hours to fully express her depth as the notes of cedar give way to softer flavors of chocolate, espresso and cigar box.More Info

Just broke open your 2008 Estate Cab...nothing short of spectacular! It's very seldom you find this level of mastery in a 100% Cab varietal...that you're able to extract such wonderous complexity from it is a testimony to your passion and incredible skill. Bravo gentlemen! I am your eternal advocate from here on out! :)

Cabernet for Care raises money for Run for a Cure at the Pink Ball in Tokyo.
By the time the last gavel came down on Premiere Napa Valley; a record breaking $3.2 million had been raised!!! That is 31% higher than last year. Our 2010, five case barrel lot went even higher; 40% higher than the 2011 event!
Held last weekend, Premiere Napa Valley welcomes national and international trades people who come to enjoy Napa Valley hospitality and to taste upcoming wines and unique barrel lots. The event culminates with an exciting, fast moving auction where the trade bids on the lots they plan to sell to their customers.
The event is always a dependable barometer of how the industry is fairing. Given the incredible results, Napa Valley is up and Clark~Claudon is way up!
