"The ‘Craig’s Second Bottling’ is a silky blend of 92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot that was aged in 65% new French oak for 22 months before bottling. Dense and chewy, with gorgeous layers of violets, crème de cassis, anise and graphite all amalgamate on the palate. With great length and viscosity, I can see this cellaring well for another decade or more."

Powerful dark berry aromas, supported by spicy oak notes. This wine is dense and dark on the palate with flavors of cassis, black cherry and cocoa nib. The long and powerful finish is loaded with supple tannin and dark fruits. There is truly a lot of value in this wine!

Craig inspired our effort to create a delicious, approachable Cabernet Sauvignon for everyday enjoyment. The wine has been so popular that we crafted a second bottling in 2016 to share with our closest followers. Sourced from some of our best vineyards, this blend captures the true essence of the Napa Valley.

Vintage NotesThe 2016 vintage marked the end of the drought years, although precipitation levels were still moderate to low. Near-perfect growing conditions continued throughout the summer with a few heat spikes that the valley is known for. Yields were a bit lower than normal, but the quality of the harvest was high. The resulting wine is rich and lush, with supple tannins and opulent, elegant finishes. Wines from 2016 are a fifth consecutive vintage of stellar Napa Valley wines.
