Our Wolf’s Head Cabernet Sauvignon comes from the Calistoga region located in the northern part of Napa Valley, home to some of the biggest, boldest wines in the Napa region. The vines are planted in a rich volcanic red soil and the high daytime and cool night time temperatures provide for intense colors, rich flavors, a touch of acidity and a ton of tannic structure in the grapes.
Winemaker’s Tasting Notes:
Upon initial pour, the 2014 Wolf’s Head Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits aromas of fresh leather, earthy minerals and dusty graphite. With a little time in the glass these characteristics evolve into sweet, dark cherries, blackberries and cassis with hints of tobacco. Dark cherries and black currants dominate the mid-palate and carry through into the long finish with some cedar notes. This wine shows great fruit extraction and a characteristically long finish that leaves one wanting more. Wolf’s Head’s winemaker, Cameron Woodbridge, has really hit his stride with this wine, our third vintage.
