About This Wine

What do you do if you own property in California’s Napa Valley?

You grow Cabernet Sauvignon grapes — that’s what! In 2001, Carl Thorsen, a retired investment company partner, met Stephen Blum, a Los Angeles real estate developer. They owned adjoining properties in the Napa Valley, and both loved wine.

So, in 2002, they planted a portion of their land to Cabernet Sauvignon, entrusting the care of their new vines to Javier Renteria, an experienced and quality-focused grape grower. And then they waited... because grapevines take several years before they produce wine-worthy fruit.

Finally, in 2006, they were ready to make wine, and Sylk Cellars produced its first bottling — a mere 485 cases of homegrown Cabernet Sauvignon. Bob Pepi and Jeff Booth were selected to take that fruit from harvest to barrel, and the resulting wine is rich, mouth-filling and long-finishing. And since 2006 was the debut vintage, this wine just may become a collector’s item.

About Cabernet Sauvignon

Deep color and richness with the potential to age a long time, and better still if aged in oak before bottling. Classic flavors blackcurrant, plum, cherry and spice. The most popular varietal of red wine in America.
