Terra Valentine produces wines with mountain intensity and balance that express the character of the Spring Mountain District appellation, the vineyards and the passion of the winemaking team. Terra, the Latin word for “land,” acknowledges the importance of hillside soil in the mountain wines. Valentine honors Owner Angus Wurtele’s father, Valentine Wurtele.

“The 2000 Wurtele Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon reveals the lush fruit and solid structure characteristic of wines from our Spring Mountain District vineyard, situated well above the Napa Valley floor,” says Winemaker Sam Baxter. “At the top of Wurtele Vineyard, lies a north facing knoll that is rich in red volcanic-clay soil and lava rock. Cooled by coastal breezes, this knoll provides the ideal terroir for Cabernet Sauvignon vines. Our 2000 release, crafted from these grapes, is packed with black fruit, spice and dark earth. The wine has balanced acidity, vibrant fruit tannins and a long finish.”

Aromas: Aromas of black currant, wild blackberry, rich earth and sweet spice. Rich black fruit balanced with full bodied tannins fill the mouth while chocolate espresso tones back the long fruit finish.

Mouth: Rich black fruit, balanced with full bodied tannins, smooth acid and chocolate espresso tones backing the long fruit finish
