Auros is crafted with hand-selected fruit from a combination of vineyards blocks in our Napa Valley appellation. The grapes were hand-picked and hand-sorted, and then briefly cold soaked to enhance the extraction of vivid color from the cabernet fruit. The juice was kept in contact with the skins for two weeks to build rich, soft tannins in the wine. Aged in French oak barrels for 18 months, this cabernet sauvignon opens with dark fruit aromas of cassis, blackberry, and dried blueberry. The rich, full-bodied palate unveils layers of black currant jam, roasted coffee, tobacco, dried fig, and vanilla bean. Soft, supple tannins frame a plush velvety finish. Varietal: 77% cabernet sauvignon, 17% merlot, 3% petite verdot, 2% syrah, 1% cabernet franc.
