Each of our six single vineyards delivers a nuanced wine with a unique reflection of the terroir. Although each wine is undoubtedly idiosyncratic, the high standards of Sequoia Grove remain a common thread that runs through every bottle. Here’s a breakdown of of our Cabernet Sauvignon Single Vineyard program and what makes these wines so special. You can purchase available vintages of these wines via our online store:
1. Tonella Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon
Located in Rutherford and farmed by Sequoia Grove, our Tonella Estate Vineyard is divided into 17 unique rootstock and clonal blocks. During harvest, these are further divided into different sections based on ripeness. This Cabernet Sauvignon represents the very best of those lots.
Dark flavors of black raspberry and plump blackberry come to the forefront are followed by more savory notes. Scents of cigar box, forest floor, and sandalwood underscore the earthiness of this wine. One of our more broody offerings, this wine is best decanted young or cellared for up to 15 years to allow its richness to fully mature.
2. Christian Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon
This family-owned vineyard is situated in the cooler Napa Valley region of Coombsville. The Christian family’s passion for their land rings loudly throughout this bottle. This is a vintage that generously highlights the skill of both winemaker and winegrower.
A distinctly floral variety, this wine greets its drinker with aromas of sweet berry jam and blueberry pie, followed by hints of sage and a surprisingly savory bacon note. This new and refreshing wine is one to watch, imbued with the classic Cabernet Sauvignon character. Our Christian Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon delightfully showcases Coombsville’s growing potential.
3. Lamoreaux Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon
The picturesque Lamoreaux Vineyards are nestled against the Mayacamas mountains in the prestigious Oak Knoll District. Ancient oak trees and grazing cattle sprinkle the property alongside many vines. The serenity of this vineyard melds into the wine it produces.
Ruby red, this wine bursts with alluring aromas of wild berry that give way to sweet raisin cake and brown sugar syrup. The palate carries notes of cherry and blackberry, finishing with a balance of acidity and tannin. Background flavors of fruit leather, cedar, and white pepper flow throughout each sip. This Cabernet Sauvignon is representative of the finest of Oak Knoll’s lots.
4. Stagecoach Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon
Our full-bodied Stagecoach Vineyard Cabernet Sauvigno is made from grapes grown on Atlas Peak – one of the highest Southern blocks of the Vaca Mountain Range. Top notes of cocoa and boysenberry give way to a briny sea-breeze aroma that persists throughout the drinking experience.
The dark, reddish-black hue of this wine signals its intensity. Its rich yet unusual flavors of cigar box and charred meat are balanced by a wonderfully silky texture and a well-rounded finish.
5. MORISOLI VINEYARD CABERNET SAUVIGNON
Another Rutherford offering, this esteemed Cabernet Sauvignon hails from the Morisoli Vineyard at the base of the Mayacamas mountains. This iconic vineyard utilizes old Italian farming styles which center around minimal water usage and full tilling of the soil. The end-product is a concentrated, remarkably structured wine.
Its scarlet color foreshadows tasting notes of succulent dark fruit and black cherry. Bright aromas of red cherry, cedar, and a subtle hint of sage permeate throughout.
This wine is produced in the smallest quantity of all our single vineyard wines, making it one of our most coveted selections. With its distinctively round, full-bodied, and juicy flavor profile, it’s easy to see why.
6. Healy Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon
These grapes are harvested on the grounds of Healy ranch, located just west of the town of Saint Helena. On the eve of the 2014 harvest, one of the largest earthquakes of the decade rocked the valley. After a harvest that almost culminated in disaster, Healy Vineyard remained undeterred and we were able to create a tremendous Cabernet Sauvignon.
Dark black-red, the aromas of this wine call to mind dark chocolate silk pie, mocha, and cherry. The palate carries red fruit and black cherry flavors intertwined with delicate vanilla undertones. This Cabernet Sauvignon strikes a fine balance between floral and rich notes, creating a smooth and velvety drinking experience. Because the Healy fruit is full of intensity, most vintages it becomes the backbone of our flagship red blend, Cambium, so it is a rare treat when we release a single vineyard Healy Cabernet.
