Item Description

The aromas of this wine are very classic Napa Valley, seducing you with notes of dark black fruit, cedar, bay laurel, cocoa and dusty plum. The pallet is expansive throughout with mouth-watering flavors of black plum, mushroom, chocolate, savory hints of bay leaf and fine sweet Napa Valley fruit. The wine fills the mouth with richness, fruit, a bright acidity and just enough natural grape and oak tannin to lengthen the wine into a great lingering aftertaste. The use of four Bordeaux varietals adds to the complexity, depth and interest of this finely crafted Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon.

RouteStock creates wines from classic grape varieties grown along well-known routes in the world’s most respected wine regions. Tried, trusted and true to their routes, these wines are handcrafted by our winemakers to be approachable and a reliable favorite.

Route 29: Route 29 travels through the heart of Napa Valley—arguably a perfect home for Cabernet Sauvignon. On a drive down Route 29 you will pass many of the vineyards that supplied perfectly ripe grapes for this Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon.

Route 29: Route 29 travels through the heart of Napa Valley -- a lovely home for Sauvignon Blanc. On a drive down Route 29 you will pass many of the vineyards that supplied grapes for this Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc.

Route 121: Route 121 meanders through Carneros ("ram" in Spanish), a region once known for its sheep populations. On a drive down Route 121 you will pass many of the vineyards that supplied perfectly ripe grapes for this Carneros Chardonnay.

Carneros is well-known as a cool-climate region, perfect for growing Chardonnay. The morning fog and afternoon breezes off the chilly San Pablo Bay cool the region, while the Napa and Sonoma valleys to the north heat it up. This heat causes the air to draw inland over Carneros, drying the vines of the moist morning fog. As night falls, the fog rolls in, protecting the vines from potential morning sun.

Route 99W: Established in 1930, Route 99W is part of the Pacific Coast Highway which travels north/south through some of Willamette Valley's most notable vineyards. On a drive down Route 99W, you will pass many of the vineyards that supplied perfectly ripe grapes for this Willamette Valley Pinot Noir.

Route 29: Route 29 travels through the heart of Napa Valley, which is arguably a perfect home for Cabernet Sauvignon. On a drive down Route 29, you will pass many of the vineyards that supplied perfectly ripe grapes for this Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon.
