Appellation:  Wildcat Vineyard, Mount Veeder, Napa Valley

Production: 144 cases

Fermentation: Open-top fermenters

Barrel Aging: 24 months in French oak (60% new & 40% used once)

Flavor Profile: Concentrated flavors lead with blackberry, cherry and cranberry with well-integrated tannins. The bright fruits are balanced by beautiful acidity and a hint of minerality.

Varietals & Source: 98% Cabernet Sauvignon from the Wildcat Vineyard, located 1,800 feet up on Mount Veeder, and 2% Cab Franc. The Wildcat Vineyard was planted with red Bordeaux varietals by Lisa Chu in the 1990s and produces rich, intense grapes with soft tannins. The vineyard's hilly topography, microclimates and long growing season make it challenging to farm, but the additional effort yields wines that are consistently elegant and memorable. 

Clones:  The “Elegant Lady” or Clone 15 from the Hillside Block usually results in a wine that is more elegant, smooth and well rounded. The “Bratty Boy” aka Clone 169 from the Terraces Block usually is more tannic, angular and full bodied. We blend these to capture the elegance of the Elegant Lady with the backbone and structure of the Bratty Boy. Alone, each could make a great wine, but together they create magic in the bottle.

Aging Potential:  Will age beautifully over the next 15-20 or more years

Alcohol: 14.5%

"The Majuscule Cabernet shows classic purity of blueberry and blackberry fruit as well as flowers and subtle background oak is followed by a full-bodied, voluptuously textured, multi-layered wine that is stunningly lush, with sweet tannin and beautiful purity and length. This fine wine can be drunk early on or cellared for another 25 years."  - Pierre DuMont, Piedmont Post
