The wines of 1881 Napa honor the rich history, legacy and heritage of this world-famous winegrowing region from its district wines to select wines blended with fruit from across the valley to create the ideal expression of a Napa Valley wine. Enticing aromas of cranberries and plum continue through to the palate and are balanced by dusty spices and a touch of incense. Dense and rich, this Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon has concentrated blueberry and strawberry flavors with an intermingling of caramel. Silky, fine-grained tannins lead to a long and sumptuous finish.

The wines of 1881 Napa honor the rich history, legacy and heritage of this world-famous winegrowing region.

About the Vintage: 2018 was a near picture-perfect growing season that began in late February followed by a mild Spring yielding uniform grape clusters. Temperatures remained moderate to cool throughout the season with 2018 being considered one of the coolest vintages of the past decade. The cooler temperatures allowed for a longer hangtime resulting in an even and temperate harvest.

Winemaker’s Notes: Harvested from vineyards across Napa Valley, this bold Cabernet Sauvignon is a blend of warmer climate hillside vineyard fruit and valley floor fruit creating a wine that celebrates the region’s diversity and complexity. A deep dark purple in the glass, this wine opens with a bouquet of boysenberry, bourbon and toasted vanilla aromas with a waft of caramel. Full-bodied with a plush entry, layers of brown sugar, cocoa, mulling spices and currants fill the mouth and are complemented by rich, round tannins. The finish is long and smooth.
