Overview of the Wine
It is said by Burgundian vinters that the grape is simply a vehicle that allows the vineyard to express itself. Shibumi Knoll is located in the center of the Napa Valley .3 miles off Highway 29 and a quarter mile from the Napa River. It is on the alluvial fan of Mill Creek and is composed of 80% rock. Thus the wine shows the grace of Napa Valley Cabernet yet has the structure we see in wines from stony hillside vineyards. We harvest the grapes when they are ripe but not overly so. Therefore our Cabernet shows many qualities of a great red Bordeaux. Because of these qualities it is a favorite at The French Laundry.

Winemaker's Tasting Notes
This vintage of Cabernet is so delicious. It has a wonderful nose that fills your senses with nutmeg and dark fruits. The intense bold fruit flavors include plum , dried apricot and black currant with a subtle earthiness. This wine has soft tannins and a long mouth feel that’s smooth and velvety on the palate. This old soul cabernet will be one of your favorites to drink now and for years to come.

94 Points - Jeb Dunnuck (2018)
Coming from a site north of St. Helena, on the east side of Highway 29, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Shibumi Knoll Vineyard has a beautiful, perfumed, elegant style in its red and blue fruits as well as notes of rose petal, chocolate, and exotic flowers. It actually reminds me slightly of Las Piedras with its floral character and is medium to full-bodied, balanced, and elegant on the palate, with terrific tannins. It’s going to evolve for 15-20 years.
