Hagafen Cabernet Sauvignon 2014
This intensely inky-colored Cabernet Sauvignon wine is grown in the well-drained, stoney and iron-rich soils of the Weir Family Vineyard along the Silverado Trail, one mile south of the famed Stags' Leap appellation and ten yards from the Oak Knoll District, the Valley's newest sub-appellation. The rich, spicy nose of bakers' chocolate and black cherry compliments the brooding and spice-filled black licorice, black cherry, plum and cranberry on the palate.
Hagafen Cellars is located in the Napa Valley, in the heart of California's premier wine grape region. Owned and operated by Irit and Ernie Weir, the winery was founded in 1979. The first vintage released commercially was harvested in 1980. In the ensuing 20 years, we have grown from a small partnership producing wine with grapes from Winery Lake Vineyard, then owned by Rene DiRosa, to a well-established wine company whose wines are distributed throughout North America and overseas. Our wines have been served on numerous occasions at the White House to visiting foreign dignitaries. In November 1999, we broke ground for our new winery on the Silverado Trail. Hagafen Cellars currently produces 7,000 cases of premium table wines each year.
