2015 Polaris Vineyard Cabernet Sauvginon, Howell Mountain AVA, Napa Valley;
Planted by Jon Dodge, formerly the vineyard manager at Burgess Cellars in Howell Mountain, Polaris Vineyard was developed in 1982 and planted in 1990 and is adjacent to the famed Beatty Ranch vineyard. Polaris is 3.2-acre vineyard, and is head trained with a loosely trained California sprawl type canopy and trellising system. This wine is actually a field blend of clone 155 and clone 6 Cabernet Sauvignon, with tiny amounts of Cabernet franc and Petit Verdot. The wine is full bodied and layered with outstanding concentration. Impossibly elegant and smooth with massive structure, this wine needs time to do it justice and will age many years given the right conditions. The wine is aged in once used Seguin Moreau barrel. One barrel produced.
