Napa Valley Appelation (Oakville)

100% Cabernet Sauvignon

 

Winemaking Notes

This is our fifth vintage of “District 4” Cabernet Sauvignon. This wine comes from a small vineyard in Oakville that became available at the last moment. The aromas of black cherry, raspberry, and spice pop out of the glass. The wine is drinking well now because of the relatively soft tannins. The finish is full of red candied fruit and lasts for 20+ seconds.

2010 PRIME Cabernet Sauvignon Coombsville, Napa Valley

Tech notes:

100% Napa Valley (Coombsville)

(Midoriya Hills, Olive Ridge and Vichy Vineyards)

100% Cabernet Sauvignon

Winemaking Notes

The 2010 vintage marks the second bottling of PRIME “Coombsville”. From the first vintage of Prime in 2005 to today I have always focused on Coombsville as a unique and outstanding sub region of the Napa Valley. This wine is made up of the best lots from my Olive Ridge, Midoriya Hills and Vichy Vineyards. The flavors are rich and varietally correct (100% Cabernet Sauvignon). The wine should be able to age well due to the relatively high acid levels and significant tannin backbone. Aged for 21 months in 66% new French and Hungarian oak barrels.

2012 PRIME Cellars Chardonnay "District 4 ", Napa Valley

Tech notes:

14.3% Alc.

3.67pH

191 cases

100% Napa Valley (Coombsville)

100% Chardonnay

Winemaking Notes

1/2 neutral, 1/2 stainless steel.
Fermented on the lees, stirred weekly for 5 months.
No ML fermentation

 

The 2012 vintage of PRIME Chardonnay comes from the 25 year old vines of the Berry Lane Vineyard in Napa’s Coombsville district. The wine was made in a fairly unusual style: 50% neutral oak and 50% stainless steel fermentation. To preserve the natural acidity, the wine did not go through malolactic fermentation. The result is a Chardonnay that has an unusually crisp acid profile yet has the flavors associated with barrel fermentation.
