WINEMAKER NOTES

Our Leonardini Vineyard Cabernet comes from one of our most prized vineyards and is the owner’s namesake. Out of the 12 acres of Cabernet Sauvignon planted on this property, winemaker Dean Sylvester hand selected the fruit from six vine rows to be used for this single vineyard bottling. This vineyard is located on the western side of the valley floor in the St. Helena AVA, which is celebrated for its exceptional gravelly-loam soil.   

 

THE VINTAGE

2013 has been hearlded as one of the best vintages to come out of Napa Valley. The weather was ideal from bud break in the early Spring through to September 12th when the grapes were harvested. The summer daytime temperatures in the Leonardini Vineyard averaged about 83 degrees and the nights were in the mid 50’s.
