This vineyard is named for its prized location on State Lane north of the Yountville Crossroad and northeast of the town of Yountville. This distinct vineyard relies on its rocky, loam soil for excellent drainage throughout the year. The vines, as well as the clusters, are moderate in size and the vineyard gets full sun throughout the day. From the outset, this is one powerful, deeply expressive Cabernet Sauvignon with a lingering finish.
From the outset, this is one powerful, deeply expressive Cabernet with heady black currant, plum, and cedar aromas leading into a big, juicy entry. Layered currant and black cherry flavors are accented by elegant clove notes. Bold, coating tannins support and frame the entire wine, and hints of wet slate add dimension to a dark, brooding finish.
