The Story

Single vineyard wine,  Money Road Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon, typifies the classic wine profile that put Oakville on the map as Napa Valley's most sought after Cabernet Sauvignon destination. Wine is aged 20 months in medium plus French barriques, 78% new. Aromas of dark berries, black cherry, slate, mocha and even tobacco lend to its classic character. The palate is rich and complex with seamlessly integrated layers of brooding dark fruit and refined tannins. The finish is lengthy and the aging potential is 20 plus years.

Production: approx. 900 cases annually
