Ashes & Diamonds 2018 'Red Hen Vineyard' Estate Cabernet Sauvignon, Oak Knoll District, Napa Valley, CA, USA

Farming: Biodynamic

Winemaker: Diana Snowden Seysses

Varieties: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Cab Franc, 7% Petit Verdot 

Terroir: Red Hen Vineyard sits in the Oak Knoll District of Napa Valley, located in the foothills of the Mayacamas Mountains. With well-draining gravel and cobblestones suspended in alluvial silt and clay, the soil here acts like a sponge, naturally pulling rainwater down from the mountains and requiring little to no irrigation. 

Vinification: The wine is macerated for 19 days in stainless steel tanks. 

Aging: 19 months 32% new french oak

Tasting Notes: Smoky, lush and strikingly balanced, this is a highly satisfying Napa Cabernet that does not need a dozen years of aging to enjoy properly! Full bodied with chewy but integrated tannins, this wine has aromas of ripe blueberries, dark plum, shiitake mushrooms, eucalyptus with a dark brooding finish.
