Krueger Lane Vineyard is located in Coombsville, Napa’s most recently recognized sub AVA. It lies in southeastern Napa, at the southern section of the Vaca Range. The vineyard’s unique deep red earth is comprised of volcanic soils and alluvial deposits. Temperatures during the growing season are moderated by the vineyard’s proximity to the San Pablo Bay, just to the south. This cooler climate, relative to the hotter parts of the valley to the north, permit longer hang time on the vines. This contributes to more complex flavor development, all while keeping sugars and alcohol in check. The wine was matured for 22 months in French barrels (one third new oak) before bottling. This Cabernet Sauvignon has a dark red-purple hue. The nose is rich, exhibiting ripe red fruits, a touch of vanilla and mocha. On the palate, this wine exudes black cherry, and chocolate. The finish reveals good acidity and smooth, elegant tannins.
