Shypoke's Napa Vally Cabernet Sauvignon is 100% Cab from Calistoga. On the nose, you'll find lifted, pure aromatics, powerful yet elegant. The wine displays dusted summer blackberries and creme de cassis. Silky tannins detail the singularity of Napa Valley Cabernet. An impeccable wine from an illustrious site.
Shypoke calls the Calistoga AVA home. Their estate vineyard is located in the north-western corner of Napa Valley. The dirt-to-bottle history began in 1904 when Peter Heitz's great-grandparents immigrated from Alsace and literally planted roots and built bonded winery #103 for the production of fine wines. Through five generations of grape growers and winemakers, the Heitz family has continued the vision and efforts that begun in 1904. Each wine honors the traditions of a family working together, to farm heirloom vines, and handcraft the resulting fruit into uniquely elegant and honest wines of place and vintage.
A great small-production Cabernet discovery from Calistoga - highly recommended.
