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
The 2014 Cuvée Katrina Eileen is delightfully expressive and immediately captivating. At first glance, it unveils a dark ruby color. Lavish aromas of cassis, blackberry liqueur and toasted hazelnuts compel the first taste. The finish is long with lingering reminders of ripe black fruits and roasted coffee beans, gaining complexity until the very last sip.
