RARECAT Old Toll Cabernet Sauvignon
We love elegant Cabernets that are regal in balance, marked by complex aromas that make you dream. The goal of our Old Toll Cabernet Sauvignons are a wine rich in elegance, deep in flavor, with tannins hidden in the background that will support these flavors for many years to come. We have three Old Toll Hillside vineyards in Napa Valley: Calistoga, Spring Mountain and 1000ft below Howell Mountain AVA.
Cabernet Sauvignon. These grapes are not typically plump or beautiful; they are small and loose and their skin to pulp ratio is low, yielding a concentrated flavor. Old Toll has Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. The majority of the grapes are planted to Cabernet Sauvignon with small amounts of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. The vineyard site is a steep up and down site facing southwest. The vines are very closely planted and there is the ability for them to be watered in stressful times. The vines are around 15 years of age and show signs of mature development in the cellar.
