Winemaker Notes

Much like its 2015 predecessor, the 2016 Yountville Cabernet boasts lush, velvety tannins and a full-bodied, round mouthfeel. However, it distinguishes itself with a nose that is notably earthy and ample—driven by dark fruit and mocha notes.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JS 96
James Suckling
Super fresh boysenberry and mulberry aromas lead to a palate that has a very fleshy, long and dense core of fine tannins that carry in a seamlessly long, fluid style. There’s impressive purity here and excellent concentration of fruit. Try from 2022.
WS 94
Wine Spectator
A big, broad-shouldered wine, with a streak of savory darting through the layers of cassis, fig and boysenberry fruit, followed by sassafras and sagebrush accents on the well-structured finish, where a lingering echo of loam plays out. Best from 2021 through 2035.
WE 93
Wine Enthusiast
This is 100% varietal from a property along the lower slopes and foothills of the Mayacamas. Relatively cool, it coaxes Old World elegance and structure from the grapes, displaying lush tannin and integrated oak effusive in pencil shavings, clove and cigar box, the fruit dark and brambly. Enjoy best from 2026 through 2030.

Newton Vineyard Winery Video

Newton was founded in 1977 by English businessman Peter Newton and his Chinese wife Su Hua. Peter Newton was already renowned as a pioneer of winemaking in the Napa Valley, having founded the Sterling Winery near Calistoga in the 1960s. The Newtons transformed one square mile of rolling hillside in Spring Mountain into one of the Napa Valley’s most prestigious estates, whose wines have graced the official dinners of several US presidents.

The Newton estate encompasses 170 acres of prime Napa Valley terroir, distributed over four separate, wholly owned vineyards: Spring Mountain, Yountville, Mount Veeder and Carneros.

Newton is renowned for producing wines that are uniquely characterful expressions of varietals emblematic of the Napa Valley, notably Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon. Working patiently with nature, we are committed to precision viticulture and winemaking techniques yielding wines that are acclaimed for their balance, harmony and full, abundant flavors.

One of Napa Valley's most historic sub-appellations, Yountville spreads through some of the valley's ideal cooler sites and enjoys success with a handful of different and significant grape varieties.

Syrah competes strongly with Cabernet Sauvignon here for optimal vineyard real estate followed by Pinot noir, Pinot blanc and Sauvignon blanc.

This sub-AVA of Napa Valley is rich in the history that makes Napa Valley what it is today, and not just for red wines. Moët & Chandon entered the California winemaking business via Yountville in 1973 with the establishment Domaine Chandon. Their goal has always been to produce top quality méthode champenoise sparkling wines.

Christian Moueix, originally responsible for managing Chateau Petrus and La Fleur-Petrus in Pomerol, arrived in Yountville in the early 1980s. He formed a partnership with Rohin Lail and Marcia Smith, inheritors of Napanook vineyard from their father John Daniel of Inglenook in Rutherford. In 1995 Moueix became sole owner of Napanook and chose the name Dominus, which today produces some of Napa’s highest scoring, age-worthy Bordeaux Blends.

A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon enjoys success all over the globe, its best examples showing potential to age beautifully for decades. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in Bordeaux's Medoc where it is often blended with Merlot and smaller amounts of some combination of Cabernet Franc, Malbecand Petit Verdot. In the Napa Valley, ‘Cab’ is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious, age-worthy and sought-after “cult” wines. Somm Secret—DNA profiling in 1997 revealed that Cabernet Sauvignon was born from a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc in 17th century southwest France.
