The story starts five million years ago when a small sandpiper wandered along the shore, seeing a world we will never know. The tiny tracks the sandpiper left behind were covered with sediment and fossilized by the geological forces that created what is now the Porter Family Vineyards in the Coombsville region of Napa Valley.
From their hillside vineyards and underground winery, the Porter Family makes small amounts of beautifully hand-crafted wines—each one carrying the unique signature of this place. The Porters retain the fossilized footprints of the sandpiper found on their property as a reminder of the incredible history of their winegrowing site.

Crafted by Ken Bernards the 2009 Cabernet offers up an amazing dark hue and intense, extracted aroma of cassis, plum, black stone fruits. On the palate this full-bodied, intensely concentrated wine offers up a potpourri of flavors – black currant, espresso, plum, a whiff of nutmeg and toasty vanilla. The wine is big and round, yet extremely well-balanced with the right amounts of acidity intertwined with the gorgeous fruit. The structure is bold, so I suggest decanting the wine a good 1-2 hours before serving. Fine, grained tannins show the age ability of this wine. Only 325 cases produced.
