The idea for Resilience emerged in one of the most challenging moments for our small winery. In an unbelievable chain of events, we were unable to open the doors of our new winery home due to the pandemic. A few months later, we sustained catastrophic losses in our Napa vineyards due to fire and smoke damage. In February, we were disheartened by the destruction of all three of our Texas vineyards in the most brutal winter storm we have witnessed. Our grapevines survived and pushed their roots deeper into the earth so that next year they can come back stronger and more prepared for mother nature. We too have come back from setbacks with renewed vision, clarity, excitement, and focus on what matters most. Inside this bottle of Resilience is a wine worthy of its virtue.
Cabernet Sauvignon grapes hand harvested from family-owned vineyards in the St. Helena appellation of Napa Valley were aged for 24 months in French Oak barrels before aging an additional 24 months in the bottle. This wine has a plush, velvety texture with seamless tannins culminate in a lengthy, lingering finish. We suggest decanting this wine for 20 minutes before enjoying to maximize flavor expression. This wine will continue to age in the bottle and drink well through 2030. While we have enjoyed this wine by itself many times, it will enhance cave ripened cheeses, smoked and grilled meat, and dark chocolate.
