2005 Jana Winery Cathedral Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley
The small crop and berry size allows for full maturity of the grapes at lower sugar levels allowing us to make a true regional and varietal wine at 13.5% alcohol. "Being European trained, this vineyard allows me to produce a Napa Valley Bordeaux blend as a balanced, complete wine," explained Scott Harvey. The wine was aged for over two years in French Oak creating a flavorful wine with well rounded tannins. Well structured, chewy, firm, violets, pyrazines, hints of mint.

“Receiving these honors is wonderful, of course,” said winemaker Scott Harvey, “but most of all, Jana Cathedral is a fun wine to craft. I believe in crafting Napa Valley Cabernets the way they used to be crafted back in the 1950s and 60s, and that’s at below 14% alcohol with a good lower pH that will make the wine last for years and years. That will also make the wine delicate enough that it will go well with food without overpowering it.”
