2015 Cabernet Sauvignon "Brothers Vineyard"
Our Brothers Vineyard comprises 11 gently rolling acres at 850 feet of elevation atop the eastern ridge of the Napa Valley between Rutherford and St. Helena. It includes a knoll we call “Palomino Hill,” where our highest elevation vines grow. This vineyard-designated Cabernet Sauvignon comes from the eastern slope of tiny Palomino Hill – from the two acre Block C, one of six blocks within the Brothers Vineyard. Yields were down in 2015, but the smaller clusters, smaller berries, and warm fall weather swung our wines toward the “bigger-richer” end of the spectrum. The 2015 Brothers is a powerful expression of our site and a unique vintage – wine writer Antonio Galloni's review opens with " A knockout wine, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Brothers dazzles from the very first taste. ...” 98% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Petit Verdot.
