Wolf Family was created in 1997 by Jane and Doug Wolf. In 2013 they sold the property and purchased another great well-established vineyard on White Lane a stone’s throw away. They still make two Cabernets, one 100% Estate and the Phaedrus, which is a blend of two excellent Napa vineyards (The Wolf Estate & the Montgomery Vineyard).

The 2018 Phaedrus is a 100% Cabernet Sauvignon sourced from two St. Helena Wolf-owned vineyards. The wine was aged for 20 months in 25% new French oak barrels, offering lush aromatics of black stone fruits, chocolate and spice. The palate is full bodied, lively and very juicy, and loaded with bright black stone fruit, chocolate, a whiff of licorice and vanilla. This wine is amazingly balanced with great fruit, acidity and structure, and the long finish suggests it can be drunk now and/or cellared for a good 8-10 years.
Winemaker Notes: “The 2018 Wolf Phaedrus Cabernet displays boisterous aromatics of boysenberry, dark raspberry, subtle vanilla and toast notes, exotic spices, and beautiful floral lift. The palate is round and lush, with deep flavors echoing the nose, with the addition of some deeper darker chocolate notes. Great supporting acidity provides energy and focus to the soft generous finish.”
