The Fahden Family, now in its third generation as growers, produces Cabernet Sauvignon. The limited production of 2,500 cases per year comes from estate vineyards, located in the mountains on the western ridge above Calistoga. This Sonoma County Mountain Cabernet is always deep in color and distinct in flavor, due to the influence of the volcanic ash soils in which they are grown. There is a unique note of earthiness not found in wines grown on the valley floor. The first vintage was bottled in 1986. It was made in the traditional style producing a wine which was a chewy, tannic monster. This estate has spent the last decade developing a more elegant style of wine which is consistent vintage after vintage. This style reflects a balance between the intense character of mountain fruit that ensures aging ability, and makes the wine more approachable for enjoyment during the wine's youth. This updated wine has been further complemented with a program of tannin management and blending a small amount of Merlot to create a more complex mid-palate, pleasing mouth feel and smooth full-bodied finish. The wine was aged predominantly in American oak from Appalachia and Minnesota that adds a hint of vanilla leading to a smooth finish.
