Hayfork Field Select Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
The 2016 Hayfork Field Select is our more concentrated cabernet made with 12% of the ever pretty Lewelling Ranch Petit Verdot and our very favorite block of Clone 6 Cabernet. Its velvety frame is enlivened with plenty of floral character, black currants, graphite, cedar and a notable finish. This wine embodies our every effort to make beautiful wine.

Jeb DunnuckEven better, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Field Select is a selection of clone 6 Cabernet Sauvignon blended with 12% Petit Verdot, all from the Lewelling Ranch Vineyard and aged 20 months in new French oak. It’s a blockbuster that still shows the elegance and finesse that are common from this site. Notes of creme de cassis, graphite, blueberries, and a vibrant floral character all develop with time in the glass, and it hits the palate with full-bodied richness, perfect balance, silky tannins, and a great, great finish. It’s another thrilling wine from Haley Wight that can be drunk today or cellared for two decades or more.
