VINTAGE : 2018


REGION/APPELLATION : California, Sta. Rita Hills, Central Coast 

VARIETALS :Cabernet Sauvignon

VINEYARD : Happy Canyon

From Block 8 of the Happy Canyon Vineyard, these gnarly old head trained vines originate from cuttings of the famed To Kalon Vineyard in Napa. The block is situated on an extremely steep, west facing slope full of river cobble. Due to its extreme terrain the block is farmed 100% by hand. During the growing season mid-morning fog lifts to warm sunshine in the afternoons before a dramatic cool down each night. This diurnal shift allows for optimal ripening while retaining a remarkable acidity in the grapes.

  • 2.03 acres
  • 120 cases produced

  • (94 points - VINOUS) "The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Happy Canyon Vineyard emerges from head-trained vines planted with To-Kalon clone Cabernet on a steep, west-facing slope. A super-classic, Old School Cabernet, the 2018 is dazzling from the very first taste. Crushed flowers, sweet red berries, mint, spice, tobacco and cedar lend striking aromatic nuance. The 2018 is going to need a few years to soften, but it is full of promise." - Antonio Galloni
