People ask why I named the wine Vicarious. The answer is... I'm extremely passionate about the wines that I make and honestly want you to experience my passion Vicariously through the wine in your glass. I also want to offer something that showcases my talent in blending wines to create something that over delivers for the value provided.

Only 12 barrels of this high impact wine were bottled. Grown in several areas of the Napa Valley and Sierra Foothills, this Cabernet Sauvignon dominant blend provides the foundation supporting Syrah, Merlot, and Petite Sirah. All wines were triple sorted down to the berry, fermented in both small open top fermenters and new French oak barrels, and matured in 65% new French oak for 22 months.

Lush blackberry, black cherry, blueberry and plum mingle with white pepper, baking spices and vanilla. The tannins provide solid structure to the wine but are well integrated. The concentrated fruit is the main characteristic but the spice and bit of earthy brambles lend pleasing complexity. 

This is a bold but balanced cab blend at a great value.
