As Summer drifts toward the Harvest months, Spring Mountain enters a bustling time of activity. This is the perfect time of year to visit Sherwin Family Vineyards, meeting the vintners and experiencing our fine wines while watching harvest take place. For those who are new to our little corner of Napa Valley, a short guide to our wines of summer can be an enlightening experience.
2015 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon
The flagship wine of Sherwin Family Vineyards, our Estate Cabernet Sauvignon is produced entirely from fruit grown on the Sherwin Family estate. The 2015 vintage is one of our most notable harvests, and this wine is excellent for today or cellaring for special occasions. Very limited production as 2015 was a low yielding year.
2015 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon
Hand-selected from the cream of the crop Cabernet Sauvignon barrels, our 2015 Reserve Cabernet is barrel aged for 30 months on 100% new French oak to integrate the full bodied tannin and bring out the full flavor profiles that our mountain fruit has to offer. Production of this fine wine is limited, so order yours while supplies last. Only 150 cases produced.
Cellar Scraps #13
Created from 2015 and 2016 vintings of several wines, this 70% Cabernet Sauvignon includes a hint of Petite Syrah, Syrah, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc. Perfect for formal gatherings and informal events as well, we are sure your family and friends will love the balanced flavor and distinctive aroma.
2018 Carneros Chardonnay
Made with fruit from a Carneros vineyard originally planted in 1965, this fine wine has roots that trace back to Chardonnay clones grown at Wente vineyards. The fruit driven flavor profile is balanced with just a hint of the oak barrels it is stored in.
2018 Rosé of Cabernet
A great summer wine for outdoor gatherings and quiet evenings alike, our 2018 vintning carries a clean flavor that brings out the flavor of foods it is paired with. Popular at local venues, a magnum of this excellent wine is the perfect addition to any connoisseur's wine cellar.
2018 Sauvignon Blanc
One of Sherwin Family Vineyard’s popular white wines, Sauvignon Blanc goes well with fruits and cheeses, making it an excellent wine to serve at wine tastings or romantic dinners. Be sure to ask about our Sauvignon Blanc while visiting the estate.
We are thrilled to make our estate part of your visit to St. Helena, but veraison is a crucial time and the vineyards keep us busy from August through October. Sherwin Family Vineyards is a working estate, and visitors are encouraged to make reservations before visiting so that you will receive the attention you deserve. To allow you to fully enjoy the experience, we suggest arranging for transportation ahead of your visit, such as our area’s unique My Napa Valley Driver.
