A great small-production Cabernet discovery from vineyard next to Opus One and Caymus! Inviting aromas of toasted walnut, cedar, black cherry, blackberry, ripe fig and warm notes of nutmeg. A medium to full bodied wine full of robust flavor and balance. Bright fruit flavors of blackberries, damson plum, chocolate ganache and blackcurrant are layered with notes of molasses, date, coffee, cocoa and tobacco. Enjoy now and over the next 5-8 years. With 100 years of agriculture in Napa, it comes as no surprise that the heart and soul of Gamble Family Vineyards is deeply rooted in the soil. Founded by third-generation farmer Tom Gamble in 2005, Gamble Family Vineyards owns prime estate vineyards in many of Napa’s most respected AVAs—Oakville, Mt. Veeder, Rutherford and Yountville. Tom Gamble follows a holistic approach to farming and winemaking. His goal is to farm in a manner that isn’t detrimental to the community or the planet. His winery and vineyards are certified Napa Green and certified by Fish Friendly Farming.
