Our Napa Cabernet Sauvignon is everything we want a Napa Valley Cab to be: carmel, cassis, brambly raspberry, black pepper, clove, smoked meats, cranberry, blackberry jam, and bacon. Need we say more!

Experience rich plum, blackberry, and eucalyptus with raspberry preserves and dark cocoa nibs with this inviting Cabernet. A lingering finish rounds out the well-integrated structure.

"Baking Spices, cloves, milk chocolate, red plums and nutmeg, as well as some blackberry bush. Nicely polished on the full-bodied palate with pretty tension and a tight finish. Lovely herbal undertones throughout."

"Full-bodied and laden with black fruit preserves and earthy layers in the mouth, it has a firm, chewy frame and good long finish." Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The Reserve label is the most elevated in our Cabernet portfolio. The intertwined circles were chosen to represent the marriage of Betty Pocai and Van Ballentine and their two families vineyards and history joining.
Black cherry and fig compote with a beautiful floral nose compliment the vanilla, cedar, and blueberry pie. A hint of coffee, toasted coconut, and huckleberries balance this full-bodied wine! The perfect winter Cabernet.

Fig Tree Vineyard and Pocai Vineyard
Classic big, bold Napa Cabernet Sauvignon beautifully structured with a dense purple color packed with aromas of cherry, blueberry, clove, and vanilla. Flavors of dark cherry, licorice, black currants complement the long layered finish. It will age beautifully for 25 years.
