VINEYARD

Our Unfiltered Cabernet Sauvignon features grapes from some of the best sites within the Napa Valley. Harvested from our Spring Mountain, Mt. Veeder and Yountville appellation vineyards, the blended fruit represents the essence of premium Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon.

VINTAGE CONDITIONS

2017 should be divided into two components: before and after Labor Day. The year started with extended rainfall, followed by a mild Spring, resulting in extended flowering with little shatter. Temperatures remained mild through the growing season up until August, which allowed for great flavor development in line with sugar accumulation. During Labor Day weekend, a heatwave kicked harvest into high gear. Sugar levels returned to normal when the weather cooled. All of our fruit was fermenting at the winery by October 8th—minus half of our Mount Veeder yield, which remained on the vine. On October 9th, a wildfire hit the Napa/Sonoma regions, ending the vintage for Newton. We did not pick any of the remaining fruit from Mount Veeder.

VINIFICATION

Once harvested and hand sorted, our Cabernet Sauvignon grapes were sent through an optical sorter, which inspected each individual berry to ensure perfect, uniform ripeness. The grape must underwent five days of cold maceration, followed by seven days of fermentation. To develop additional complexity, the wine rested on its skins for as many as 20 days before being pressed and aged for 14 months in French oak barrels, 15% of which were new.
