Inaugural 2 Barrel Napa Cabernet Star is born!

The first grapes were planted in the 1880’s, and the vineyard continuously farmed until Prohibition. Mike Yates’ family purchased the property in 1950, and Mike took over farming of the property in 1995, and began selective replanting in 1999. The vineyard is carefully tended by Mike and his daughters Whitney and Mary.

The 2015 Vintone “Yates Family” Cabernet is made of 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, that was aged 24 months in 50% neutral and 50% new (tight grain, light toast) French oak.  The deep garnet-purple colored 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Yates Vineyard has a beautifully scented aroma of bright violets and chocolate with hints of cassis, blackberry compote, a whiff of tobacco and vanilla. The full-bodied palate is loaded with lush blackstone fruit, somewaht firm and solidly structured with ripe, silky grained tannins supporting the aromatic layers.  The wine has good 30 second finish.  Well done for a first release!
