Rich and flavorful without being heavy. this wine treats you with aromas of fruit infused tobacco, fennel, and sandalwood.

Winemaker Notes
Wine lots and barrels selected for our Lone Acre Cabernet Sauvignon don’t necessarily come from a particular spot on the estate ( à la Vineyard Designate), but rather share common flavor and structural attributes that highlight what I think are the strongest varietal character of cabernet. The idea is to create a wine that is at once Old and New World in impression, i.e. the fruit is deemphasized in the aroma, but the mouth is rich and flavorful without being heavy. Instead of overripe blackberry and black currant aromas, this wine treats you with those of fruit infused tobacco, fennel, and sandalwood. If you’re tired of the typical California fruit bomb, this is a wine for you.

Vineyard Notes
Kuleto is one of the most complex and diverse wine producing properties in the world. Located in the volcanic mountains of eastern Napa, our estate features 761 total acres and 82.9 acres of vines perched along ridges and clinging to steep hillsides. Our soils, exposures, elevation changes and sub-climates are so complex that we’ve delineated our property into more than 100 micro-blocks. Each of these tiny plots is treated as an individual vineyard with varieties, clones, rootstocks, density, trellising and farming methods tailored specifically to the site.
