The most sought-after wine in our portfolio, this limited-production of 533 cases represents the pinnacle of Hertelendy winemaking and embraces the elegant power and complexity. This wine is crafted by blending Cabernet Sauvignon with other classic Bordeaux varietals. The wine was aged for 22 months in 90% new French oak, which added structure and character without overpowering the natural essence of the berries. Grown on the eastern hillsides of Napa Valley, the intricacy of these vineyards was enhanced by the powerful 2013 vintage.

Audēre (Latin)--To dare! To venture! Audēre was born from premium hillside Napa Valley grapes. All of this mountain fruit comes from Atlas Peak, Howell Mountain, Pritchard Hill, & the Silverado foothills, and was barrel aged for 23 months in 90% new French & Hungarian oak. Unlike the 2013 Audēre, which was predominantly Merlot based, this 2014 vintage is technically a Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon even though we classify it as a "red blend." This gives us the freedom every vintage to create the best possible blend after we put together our top tier flagship wines. 

The label design is similar to last year’s vintage which played upon a gothic theme of the Hertelendy Family coat of arms used on our other labels, but with a twist. Pour yourself a glass, and then dim the lights to reveal the surprise...if you dare!
