    The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate reveals a deep ruby/plum/purple color, an elegant style, medium body, and reticent aromatics of black currants, loamy soil and flowers with the oak pushed to the background. Enjoy this stylish Cabernet over the next 12-15 years.

  • Doug and Jane Wolf's property at the base of the Mayacamas range in St. Helena produces some of the top wines from the Valley every year. The historic Inglewood estate is planted to 7 acres of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, as well as a small amount of Sauvignon Blanc. Vineyards are managed by Jim Barbour and winemaking is handled by Karen Culler, who began with the Wolfs in their premiere 1997 vintage.

    California is the heartland of wine production in the US, and the state that brought prestige to American wine thanks to the pioneers who built early wineries like Staglin, Beringer, Ridge, Mayacamas and Chateau Montelena in the 1800s. Its large geographic area ensures a great diversity in growing sites, varieties grown, and quality levels. Generalizations about the state's wines have numerous exceptions; however, a few key facts generally hold true—ample sunshine, dry weather during the growing season, and moderate winters prevail. Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon continue to dominate the state's production—albeit in continually smaller percentages, as growers continue to diversify. More than 100 different varieties can be found throughout the state.
