Only 1 left!

Alcohol: 14%

Grapes: 91.3% Cabernet Sauvignon; 3.3% Merlot; 2.2% Cabernet Franc; 2.1% Malbec and 1.1% Petit Verdot

Localization: Sources for this Cabernet include Napa Valley’s cooler Yountville AVA, its warmer St. Helena AVA, its mountainous Mount Veeder AVA, and its acclaimed valley floor Rutherford AVA.

Tasting Notes: A wonderfully medium-dark hue emits a complex aroma of black plum, soy sauce, bright fruit, and oak. This translates into flavors that mirror the aromas with a beautiful balance of fruit, oak, alcohol, acidity, and tannin, creating a very smooth, bright, and savory wine of great length and complexity.”

Notes: Aged 21 months in 98% French oak with 15% being new

The Domain: RouteStock is an invitation to discover the deep roots of winemaking in Napa and Sonoma, planted firmly at each step of your journey through our vineyard sites. Every glass tells the story of Napa’s remarkable fine wine heritage, from the famous routes that wind between the vineyards, to the roots that produce its world-renowned grapes. An endeavor of enduring Napa-based importer Wilson Daniels, RouteStock is established as a product that consistently over-delivers in quality at a very attractive price point.

At the core of RouteStock is their commitment to sourcing great fruit from high-end vineyards along well-known routes in the Napa Valley. They partner with a select group of dedicated grape-growers in the best viticultural areas for each of the varietals: Napa Valley for Cabernet Sauvignon and Sauvignon Blanc, Carneros for Chardonnay, and the Sonoma Coast for Pinot Noir. Like every aspect of RouteStock, these appellations were individually selected with care to put each varietal at the greatest advantage and make the best possible wines while also showcasing their uniqueness.

Work is done hand-in-hand with all of the growers during cultivation season. The winery practices minimal intervention in their winemaking to help the grapes show their true character, using native yeasts, natural malolactic fermentation, 100% barrel aging, and no chemical additions. The intent is to let the grapes and vintage tell us what kind of wine they should be – never try to force the wine into a specific mold, but rather serve as a guide on its journey. Winemaker, Vance Rose, an industry veteran for nearly 40 years, provides s competitive advantage in the vineyard sourcing through the strong relationships he forged during his path to RouteStock Winemaker.
