CABERNET SAUVIGNON TASTING NOTES

Photogallery rendered here.


Caspar Estate wines express the terroir of our property located in Rutherford. Positioned on the sloping hillside just above the fog line overlooking Napa Valley, Caspar Estate provides an ideal, unique environment to grow Cabernet Sauvignon.  

The hillside vines offer rugged tannins typical of the site, which lend to the wines aging potential.  Finishing with length and intensity. Open now or age 10 to 15 years for optimal drinking.
