“The Five Bands is another impressive wine from Vineyard 36. Powerful and vibrant, impeccably balanced. Racy wine that shows off its considerable appeal”
“Brilliantly balanced, full-bodied, and concentrated, it has great tannins and is a seriously good wine that ranks with the crème de la crème.”
2019 Five BandsCabernet Sauvignon
Our most sought-after barrels of the year. Five Bands is the definition of ultra-premium.
This rare expression of Napa Valley winemaking is an extremely limited production, of typically less than 150 cases. Whether it’s a single vineyard or a blend of our best across all our vineyard sites, it is handcrafted from start to finish, aged in carefully selected 100% new thin stave French oak. It is the most concentrated of our range with the best tannin profile and color. It has a wonderful palette, which will gain incredible complexity over the next 20 years and beyond. A full-bodied wine with a focus on balance and vibrancy.
