Tourmaline

NAPA VALLEY

Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot

Tourmaline resides in southeastern Napa just north of Skyline Park on 92 gently-sloping acres.  Named for the birthstone of November, Tourmaline enjoys gentle ripening of fruit, often with harvests that extend into November.  Color is king for Tourmaline, with wines from the vineyard exhibiting deep ink-like hues of purple and cherry.
