In 1986, Stefano and Maddalena Riboli began farming a small, 16-acre vineyard in the heart of Napa Valley’s Rutherford appellation. Located along the Silverado Trail, the site was chosen for its rich, clay-loam soils and gentle slope. A temperate climate of warm days and cool nights provides the long growing season necessary for full maturation of flavors and aromas.
Riboli Family Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon shows layers of ripe fruit flavors, in particular, wild berry, black cherry, and ripe plum. Aromas of sweet oak, vanilla, and spice complement the equally fruit-driven nose. A small percentage of Petit Verdot adds structure and body. Soft tannins frame the full, round mouth. The wine is readily accessible but may benefit from several years of cellaring. Each bottle is a celebration of the many generations of our winemaking family.
