The pristine Sleeping Lady Vineyard sits beautifully manicured beneath the Mayacamas foothills in Yountville. For five generations the fruit from this vineyard was sold to larger wineries, but when the Bettinelli family recently took over the property that changed. Today, Sleeping Lady is one of California’s “grand cru” vineyards and Julien believes it represents the future of Napa Valley.
A beautiful expression of its terroir, this wine is earthy--like a warm summer day atop Pritchard Hill. Notes of dark chocolate, clove and baking spices, rise from the glass. Fennel and black spices can also be noticed. The struggle of the mountain vines throughout the growing season yields a rewarding long finish.
A bounty of red and black fruits--fresh raspberries and blackberries--leap from the glass enticing a quick return for more aromas of brambly berries and clove. The fruit-driven nose is met with a velvety smooth palate. Just as the vineyard suggests, this wine will age gracefully with a decade or two of slumber in the cellar.
The Martinez Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon is a dynamic example of high-elevation Pritchard Hill mountain terroir. Full and sleek in the mouth, it shines with wonderfully sweet berries and red fruit balanced by firm structure and agile acidity.
Focused mountain fruit brings brushed silk tannins infused with minerality, warm cedar and allspice for a delicious journey of satisfying textures and aromas. Bold, bright, confident and charismatic, with an extra-long and refreshing finish
This is a wine of magnificent power, crafted from multiple hillside vineyards spanning Napa Valley from North to South. The mountain fruit delivers a full-body wine with noticeable tannins and acidity. It is an approachable companion for weeknight dinners, but also possesses the structure needed to age in the cellar.
