Ashes & Diamonds Cabernet Sauvignon No 1, Red Hen Vineyard 2016

110.00

Made by Diana Snowden Seysses, this impressive Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced from the "Red Hen Vineyard, owned by Bart and Daphne Araujo’s property in the Oak Knoll District of Napa Valley. The well-drained gravelly loam soil acts like a sponge, naturally pulling rainwater down from the neighbouring mountains and requiring little to no irrigation. The wine is produced from four different blocks with distinct characteristics, fermented together by native yeasts. The resulting wine has quiet power, poise and impressive length that comes in waves. The bright, fresh fruit combined with silky, weightless tannins are the hallmark of this benchland site. 20 months ageing in oak - 35% new French barrels.

Punk rock. Experimental architecture. Polish films of the 1950s. A bottle of 1968 Beaulieu Vineyard Georges de Latour. These are just some of the inspiration points that former Capitol Records executive and much awarded advertising guru Kashy Khaledi cites when describing how he came to found Ashes & Diamonds. In just a few years since commencing this project in 2014, Khaledi has established not only a new Napa winery, but an inspired masterclass in collaboration at all levels as well– from the vineyards to the winemaking; the architecture of the winery to the labels on the bottles. Kashy’s dream was to create wines and a winery that pay homage to Napa when it took to the world stage in the 1960’s. Wines that honour some of the mid-century winemaking greats and their more restrained style, from the likes of André Tchelistcheff of Beaulieu Vineyard, John Daniel Jr. of Inglenook and Bob Travers of Mayacamas. With much revered viticulturist/winemaker Steve Matthiasson at the helm of viticulture, working with some of the most and famous and iconic sites in Napa, and winemaking split between Steve and Diana Snowden Seysses, Ashes & Diamonds Winery and Khaledi’s vision of the birth of Napa is certainly in safe hands.
