Overview

Maxville is nestled deep in Chiles Valley of Napa Valley where over 1,000 acres are preserved in the Napa Valley Land Trust, just over 100 acres of which are planted. Soft and full on the palate with black pepper spice. The finish is long with luscious blueberry notes. Pair this Cabernet Sauvignon with grilled steak, braised meats, lamb, and hard cheeses!

Aging

The wine spent 18 months in French oak barrels, 60% of which were new.

Fermentation

7-day cold-soak followed by a quick, warm fermentation. The wine was left on skins for one week after fermentation finished. Malolactic fermentation was done in barrels; the wine was racked once post-malo and once pre-bottling.
