This venture is still somewhat below the radar, although I’ve been working with them for about 5 years now. Tiny production, but amazing quality Cabernet sourced from one of Napa’s premium vineyards, which would be classified as a “First Growth Vineyard” in France – So let’s call it “Top-of-the-line” here!
Memento Mori is translated from Latin as “Remember That You Will Die.” The winery owners Hayes Drumwright, Adriel Lares & Adam Craun translate it as “Remember To Live!”

Robert Parker 97 Points: “A decadent blend of fruit from Beckstoffer Dr. Crane, Beckstoffer Las Piedras, Oakville Ranch and Weitz vineyards, aged 22 months in 100% new French oak, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon has a very deep purple-black color and gorgeous nose of exotic spices and incense notions—cinnamon stick, cloves, star anise, fenugreek and sandalwood—with a cassis and plum preserves core, plus hints of cigar box and menthol. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is rich and opulent, with seductively velvety tannins and invigorating freshness, finishing very long with provocative earthy suggestions coming through.
