Tasting NotesWinemaking NotesTech Notes
The GOTT 12 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon has aromas of blackberries, mocha and spice. The wine opens with red fruit flavors and soft tannins, leading to flavors of roasted fruit on the mid-palate, which are nicely balanced by bright acidity.The finish is long and richly textured.

Fruit for the GOTT 12 NapaValley Cabernet Sauvignon was sourced from vineyards in the Howell Mountain and St. Helena appellations, as well as from hillside vineyards in southern Napa. Fruit from Howell Mountain adds power and structure to the wine, while fruit from the valley floor in St. Helena retains its purity. Fruit from southern Napa provides depth and intensity, because of the cooler weather and challenging, rocky soil. Blending fruit from these three regions gives the GOTT 12 its complexity.The 2012 growing season experienced moderate temperatures throughout with a string of heatwaves in the months of September and October, resulting in fruit with ideal ripeness, deep color, great structure and incredible concentration. After fermentation, the wine was aged in 70% new Bordeaux French oak and 1-year-old Bordeaux French oak for 20 months.
