Tasting notes

Supple red berry and tart cherry aromas on the nose develop into savory spices, cocoa and black plum flavors as they coat the palate. A textural experience, this wine is vibrant on the tongue with undulating flavors of raspberry jam, dusty minerality and vanilla lead to a powerful finish.

Production

Vintage Notes

The 2018 vintage proved nearly ideal. Ample winter rains were followed by lots of spring and early summer sunshine. Bud break and flowering were slightly later than usual, but coincided with ideal weather conditions for healthy fruit set. The mild summer was followed by an equally ideal fall; allowing fruit to ripen with ample flavor and complexity with moderate sugar levels.

Viticulture

Our Napa Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley hails from select vineyards across the Napa Valley, including sites in St. Helena, Rutherford, Atlas Peak, Yountville, Diamond Mountain, Calistoga, Mt. Veeder and Pope Valley. Girard has over four decades of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon experience and every vintage is an opportunity to explore Napa’s expression of this noble grape.
