Rare new Cabernet release from winemaker Thomas Rivers Brown (Shrader, Outpost, etc). This is an exclusive for us (shhh), and only 265 cases made so hurry while we still have some available. We love getting the inside jump on small-production Napa Cabs like this. This 100% Cabernet comes from the winery's estate "Winfield Vineyard" in Calistoga. Only a tiny amount was made by winemaker Thomas brown for The Grade so it's usually available only in the country's top restaurants. 2010 was a fantastic vintage for Napa Cabernet and this is another great example. The name "The GRADE" comes from a reference to the vineyard site in Robert Louis Stevenson's book "Silverado Squatters". Where the Winfield Vineyard is now was the base of the road that climbed Mt. St. Helena, which was called "The Grade" at the time.
