The Cathiard vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon is 100% varietal and was harvested from the oldest Cabernet Sauvignon block on the property. This is the flagship bottling of the estate and only produced in very limited quantities. It shows a dense aromatic profile of earth, dark plum, Valrhona chocolate, tobacco and spice that dominate the nose. The palate is rich and round with seamless velvety tannins. A focused acidity complimented with a balanced, complete mouthfeel leads to a finish that displays the very best of the terroir farmed by Cathiard Vineyard. After 30 days in tanks the wine is drained, pressed, and undergoes a naturally occurring malolactic fermentation in new French oak followed by aged 18 months is French oak, 80% new.


Cathiard Vineyard is perched slightly above the valley floor on the lower slopes of the Mayacamas mountains with vineyards straddling both the Rutherford and St. Helena appellations. Over the decades, this historic property has featured numerous owners and vineyard and winemaking heritage dating back to the 1840’s. This exciting new estate is owned by Florence and Daniel Cathiard of Chateau Smith Haut Lafitte and several other Chateau in Bordeaux. 2020 is their first vintage release and the wines have already received rave reviews. These exceptional wines are crafted by head winemaker Justine Labbé and famed consulting winemaker Michel Rolland. The estate produces three unique expressions, each offer different personalities, the one characteristic all have in common is their superb balance. These are not heavy Napa Valley contemporary red wines, rather they have finesse and freshness, lively individualistic personalities and show extremely well with food.
