Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Rich and savory, our 2012 Momentum has red and black wild cherry and blackberry fruit, mocha, milk chocolate, vanilla bean, and tobacco aromas, and delivers these same flavors in a silky smooth ride across the palate. The vibrancy of the fruit is pronounced in the wine's full-flavored finish, inviting you to take another sip.

38% Cabernet Sauvignon, 31% Merlot, 23% Cabernet Franc, 8% Petit Verdot
Vineyard Notes
Following two cooler and wetter growing seasons, the 2012 vintage was "a walk in the park", says Vineyard Manager, Matt Ashby. A dry winter led to well-timed rain in March which saturated the soils and helped fill the reservoirs. The region's combination of warm days and cool nights endured through the growing season creating the perfect recipe for long, flavor-building hang time and optimal sugar to acid balance. We harvested our selected grapes for this wine between October 4th and October 27th.
Winemaker Notes
All of the Merlot grapes and the majority of the Cabernet Sauvignon for this wine come from the Schweitzer Vineyard in the Stags Leap District, Napa Valley. Both the vineyard and the AVA are renowned for their purity of fruit. Cabernet Franc fruit from the V Block of our To Kalon Vineyard, and a touch of Petit Verdot add breadth, volume and tannins to the beautiful Stags Leap fruit that makes up the core of this wine.

Smooth blend. Opens up very quickly and is drinkable almost immediately when it hits the glass. Big enough to go with a steak elegant enough to go it alone.
