Named after our first-born daughter, Cuvée Katrina Eileen is primarily composed of fruit from a vineyard in the Western Hills of Yountville, where yields are miniscule. The extremely rocky soil of the vineyard produces concentrated clusters of perfectly ripened Cabernet Sauvignon. In German, the name “Katrina” represents purity and fittingly, this wine is made entirely from the Cabernet Sauvignon grape, providing a pure expression of this decadent varietal. It also reflects our daughter’s personality with flavors that are complex, unreserved and expressive.
OUR TASTING NOTES
Fresh blackberries along with notes of pastry crust are immediately evident in the glass. The 2011 Cuvée Katrina Eileen is a perfumed, voluptuous fruit focused wine with a rich mouth feel and a long smooth finish with reminders of the sweet fruit found on the nose.
