About This Wine:
These include farming practices and how well the planted vineyard matches with the site’s soil and microclimate profile. The estate Alta Vineyard is planted near the top of Altas Peak, high on the eastern side of the Napa Valley in the Vaca Mountains.
At 1,700 feet, the vineyard is usually above the fog line, and experiences extended sunlight during the day and cool nighttime temperatures courtesy of winds from Suisun and San Pablo Bays. Warm days and continuous sunlight steadily ripen the fruit, while the cool night temperatures and volcanic soils ensure good acidity.
These are the “secrets” of the “Oso Malo” Cabernet Sauvignon, always a favorite in winemaker Fred Fred Oliai’s portfolio. The 2017 vintage, which includes a small amount of Cabernet Franc in the cuvee, is a deep, full-bodied and delicious example of wine crafted to exacting standards.
