About This Wine:
And rightly so. The valley has become synonymous with the varietal, and some of the world’s finest 100-percent Cabernets and Cabernet-based cuvees are crafted from Napa-grown grapes.
What many people don’t know is that Napa Valley is part of a larger American Viticultural Area in California called “North Coast.” Among other places, it takes in vineyards in two counties to the north: Mendocino and Lake. And what many Napa vintners have learned is that they can include Mendocino and Lake county grapes in their wines and craft even more complex and compelling cuvees.
El Tiburon utilizes the North Coast designation on its Cabernet Sauvignon, and that expanded geographic footprint enabled its vintner to make a rich and plush wine from the 2018 vintage. Take a sip, and toast the undeniable quality of California’s North Coast growing region.
