1996 STANLEY'S SELECTION
Cabernet Sauvignon

Tasting Notes
Aromas of sweet cherries, cassis and oak. The flavors show great richness, depth and concentration. The tannins and oak are beautifully balanced with the richness of the fruit.

Vineyard Source
The Following breakdown of the four vineyards contributing the Stanley’s fruit:
1. Price Vineyard: 1+ acre planting, contiguous to Spottswoode – early ripening. Low yield production with excellent sugar/acid ratio.
2. Walther Vineyard: 2+ acres planting near Caymus Vineyards– alluvial canyon soil. Grace Family clone – close planting for added stress.
3. Corbett Vineyard: 1+ acre also adjacent to the Moffett Vineyard. We planted this vineyard ourselves in 1987.
4. Gemstone Vineyard: Yountville AVA-An amazing vineyard which has 5 clones of Cabernet along with Cabernet Franc, Merlot, and Petite Verdot. Most of this wine is designated for our ultra premium Red Table Wine.
5. Holland Vineyard: 1 acre planted adjacent to our Moffett Vineyard
6. Snowden Vineyard: mountain vineyard source, sold fruit to Silver Oak, Vine Cliff and Rombauer. Now they keep all their fruit and produce a high end Cabernet under their own label
