Guarachi Family Wines Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Guarachi Family Wines Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

This wine comes from two stellar sites: Broken Rock and Las Piedras. Together, they yield magic—a thick, juicy and well integrated layering of red cherry, clove and cigar that exudes a strong barrel presence and structured tannin profile.

(Broken Rock) – Blessed with high drainage and low fertility soil on the eastern ridge of Napa Valley at the foot of Atlas Peak, Broken Rock consistently produces wines of unusual intensity and concentration.

(Las Piedras) – A signature Cabernet sourced entirely from Las Piedras. Known for its gravely soil, this Beckstoffer Heritage vineyard traces its roots back to the original Mexican land grants more than 150 years ago.

VINTAGE: 2015

VARIETALS: 100% Cabernet Saivignon

APPELLATION: Napa Valley

AGING: 18 months in 100% French oak

TASTING NOTES: The initial push of vivid raspberry and currant picks up herb and earth notes, gaining a measure of elegance and grace before ending with firm tannins.
