Tasting Notes
Technical Details

The 2017 Patriarch is the sixth vintage in an incredible lineage of wine. It is a symphony of structure and sophistication, with luxurious layers of crème de cassis, spiced plums, leather, and roasted espresso beans. The palate is full-bodied and plush in feel with seamless, well-integrated tannins and extraordinary length.

100% Cabernet Sauvignon grape blend.
This wine contains allergens, sulfites.
The Estate

Named in celebration of my father, Hy Frank, the Patriarch will always be our most meaningful wine. Hy was an honorable man, a World War II veteran, and a true American patriot. This wine is crafted in remembrance of Hy and everything he stood for – family, commitment to country, and the American dream

Wine Making

This wine is hand-selected from the Heart Block on our family-owned Winston Hill Vineyard, the best of our best. The vineyard’s rocky and volcanic soils are self-balancing which in turn produces Cabernet Sauvignon with natural concentration, structure, and texture. The Heart Block’s central location and high elevation along the Eastern side of Napa Valley creates a wine with bones, muscle and body, no blending from other sites is necessary.

Food Suggestions

Pairs well with beef, lamb, deer, venison, mature cheese, and poultry dishes.
