Double Barrel is a 50/50 red blend that changes with each vintage. Our winemaking team chooses two varieties that they believe will complement each other to create a wine that never disappoints. To date, no two vintages have been the same.
The 2016 Double Barrel wine is a red blend consisting of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon and 50% Malbec. All the fruit for this wine is grown on our estate high in the eastern hills of Napa Valley. The elevations of our vineyards range from 850 to 1,615 ft, providing us high-quality mountain fruit. From vine to bottle, this wine is handcrafted with attention to detail every step of the way.
Deep berry and toasty flavors jump off the palate when you drink this wine. The vibrant color from Cabernet Sauvignon is also standard in Malbec as well as the intensely rich herbal flavors that show through in this full-bodied wine. A great addition to any hearty meal, this is a wine you will want to acquire before it is gone.
This wine is exclusive to our tasting room in Yountville or online, so explore your adventurous side and add a bottle to your next order. Our Bordeaux blend, Coach Gun, is also a great one to add to the list if you haven't already!
