Cabernet Sauvignon

Our estate vineyards are home to the original plantings of Cabernet Sauvignon in Alexander Valley. With low-yield viticulture and sustainable farming practices, our Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignons are known for their bold flavors and richness.

Our Alexander Valley Cabernets

Robert Young was the first to plant this varietal in Alexander Valley in 1963. Today, we source all of our estate-grown, Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon from our blocks situated in the hillsides that lie between 500-600 feet elevation above the Alexander Valley floor. We farm our vineyards using low-yield, sustainable methods and hand-pick 100% of the fruit during harvest.  Our Cabernet Sauvignons are known for their power and structure with intense flavors allowing for the wines to be aged up to 24-26 months in French oak barrels.

Bob’s Burn Pile

Bob’s Burn Pile is a wine made in honor of our founder ~ Robert Young.  Bob, as everyone called him, would on frequent occasion amass various vineyard waste on the eastern most section of the estate, farthest away from the homestead.  When enough material was accumulated, he would do all day “burns”, tending over the fire making sure it was safe, controlled burn.  He loved the tranquility of watching the burn and enjoying a good glass of wine with an occasional friend that would stop by.   

The wine is from several Cabernet Sauvignon blocks and including The Burn Pile, Big Rock and Scion Blocks and is made in limited quantities.  It is made with 100% new French Oak and is aged for upwards of 24 months in barrel.   

Alexander Valley Cabernet

Alexander Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon have a long and rich history together. Robert Young was the first to plant this varietal in Alexander Valley in 1963, believing that this area had the right qualities to produce a world class offering. Today Cabernet Sauvignon is synonymous with Alexander Valley. At its best, Cabernet Sauvignon from the Alexander Valley has outstanding varietal intensity in both flavor and aromatics, a fresh black and red fruit profile with an opaque color and rich, plush tannins. Our Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon displays all these attributes and is a tribute to the valley that Robert Young took a chance on so many years ago.
