The 2020 Post & Beam Cabernet Sauvignon draws upon a rich array of fruit
from prized Napa Valley sites, stretching from Calistoga to Oak Knoll. These
exceptional fruit lots were blended to help us capture the quintessential
characteristics that Napa Valley Cabernet is famed for. On the nose one
finds rich aromas of cassis, leather and toasted espresso. Bright flavors of
raspberry compote framed by elegant botanical notes follow all leading to
lengthy finish of Christmas spice and clove.

One of the most prestigious wines of the world capable of great power and grace, Napa Valley Cabernet is a leading force in the world of fine, famous, collectible red wine. Today the Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without the other. But it wasn’t until the 1970s that this marriage came to light; sudden international recognition rained upon Napa with the victory of the Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars 1973 Cabernet Sauvignon in the 1976 Judgement of Paris.
Cabernet Sauvignon undoubtedly dominates Napa Valley today, covering half of the land under vine, commanding the highest prices per ton and earning the most critical acclaim. Cabernet Sauvignon’s structure, acidity, capacity to thrive in multiple environs and ability to express nuances of vintage make it perfect for Napa Valley where incredible soil and geographical diversity are found and the climate is perfect for grape growing. Within the Napa Valley lie many smaller sub-AVAs that express specific characteristics based on situation, slope and soil—as a perfect example, Rutherford’s famous dust or Stags Leap District's tart cherry flavors.
