Auros is a study in contrast. At once quintessential Napa Valley, yet entirely unique, our Cabernet Sauvignon offers a softer, more refined expression of the valley’s signature red grape variety. We’ve stretched the typical framework of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon to create a layered portrait of the region. A plush mouthfeel. Soft tannins. Bursting with dark fruit flavors.
ON THE PALATE
Deeply concentrated cassis, blackberry and dried blueberry aromas, underscored by notes of violet and graphite. A decadent palate of black currant jam, roasted coffee, tobacco, dried fig and vanilla bean. Full-bodied with supple tannins.
IN THE VINEYARD
Auros is a nuanced integration of four coveted Napa Valley sub-appellations: Rutherford, Oakville, Stag’s Leap and Oak Knoll. More than 15 different soil types converge here—from the Pacific Ocean, the Sierra Nevada Mountains and the Napa River—to create multi-dimensional characteristics in our wine.
IN THE CELLAR
We meticulously pick and sort our fruit by hand, cold-soaking the grapes to extract brilliant color from the skins. Following a warm fermentation, the wine is aged in fine French oak barrels for 18 months, giving this Cabernet its rich, round texture.
