Winemaking Notes: Grapes from sites throughout Napa Valley were harvested at optimal maturity, destemmed, and gently crushed into open-top stainless steel fermenters. The temperatures were kept warm to fully extract color and flavor. The fermented wine was racked to a combination of French and American oak (10% new) for aging. The wine lots were tasted throughout the aging process and blended back together just before bottling.
Tasting Notes: The Sean Minor Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon has aromas of ripe blueberry, red currant, and black currant. Flavors of blackberry and ripe plum fill the midpalate, entwined with black currant, mocha, and black pepper. The soft tannins and sweet oak balance lead to a long and lingering finish.
