Our well-known Jumping Goat vineyard located in the AVA of St. Helena is one of the standout wines in our portfolio. A dense inky purple color with notes of dark cherry and chocolate, with nuances of violet and lavender alongside great minerality. This rich Cabernet is silky and elegant with incredible amounts of texture and energy in the wine. A wine that shows astonishing purity and vivacity.
"This stunning 2017 is clearly the most mineral driven wine to date." -Philippe & Cherie Melka, Proprietors
