I’m signing my name to this… Handwritten is the opportunity to source what a winemaker thinks is the very best… it is the opportunity to express our love for wine and people.
– Rob Lloyd
Built from the beauty and elegance of three varieties; all unique, and yet destined to combine to create an experience that is greater than the sum of its parts. Structured with fine, elegant tannins and lovely high toned acidity.
Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley
Classic, pure and focused, our Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon offers a slightly lighter body than that of its fellow Handwritten wines in this vintage. Elegant aromas of cocoa nib, black tea leaf and violet.
Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley
Our 2011 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon delivers nuance and power from nose to palate. Flavors of anise, candied cherry and dark bittersweet chocolate compliment integrated tannins and a velvety, textural mouth-feel.
Cabernet Sauvignon, Rutherford
2016 marks the triumphant return of the Rutherford District to our portfolio of elevated Cabernet Sauvignons. Brimming with classic ‘Rutherford Dust’, the nose also exhibits ripe red fruits, black pepper spice, lavender, violets and freshly cut cedar wood.
Cabernet Sauvignon, Howell Mountain
2016 marks the inaugural release of the Howell Mountain District to our portfolio of elevated Cabernet Sauvignons. The nose is loaded with macerated black cherries, punctuated by dense blackberry bramble, and beautifully counterbalanced by notes of rosemary, black pepper, and freshly roasted coffee bean.
Cabernet Sauvignon, Mount Veeder
2016 celebrates the inaugural release of our Mount Veeder District Cabernet Sauvignon sourced from 2,600 feet, making it the highest elevated vineyard on the acclaimed mountain. The bouquet for this incredible mountain Cabernet is elegant and ethereal with lifted notes of fresh floral blossoms that counterpoint an intense core of red, black and blue berries.
Cabernet Sauvignon, Coombsville
Only the Coombsville appellation could produce a wine with such diversity of aromas and flavors, and with such intensity as is displayed in the 2015 Handwritten Coombsville Cabernet Sauvignon.
Cabernet Sauvignon, Oak Knoll
In previous vintages labeled simply as the Handwritten Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, it is now time to give Oak Knoll its due. A longer growing season equals balanced acidity and complex flavors…
Cabernet Sauvignon, Calistoga
The 2015 offers aromas of plum jam, baking chocolate and wild red berries. On the palate, firm tannins and balanced acidity provide a sturdy framework for warm black fruit, spice and tobacco loaf.
Cabernet Sauvignon, Stags Leap
Hillside fruit grown in the Stags Leap district has a reputation for producing wines which magically balance power and elegance. These coarse, gravely soils produce high intensity flavors.
Pinot Noir, Sta. Rita Hills
Hailing from Santa Barbara County, we have strayed from Napa County for good reason with this lovely 2015 Pinot Noir. Bright bing cherries and freshly picked strawberries delight both the nose and palate.
In each vintage the Handwritten Chardonnay is harvested from one very special block of the Truchard Vineyard in the Carneros region of the Napa Valley. It is our winemaker’s favorite block of this exquisite vineyard.
Sauvignon Blanc, the variety that makes up the Author happens to be one of the parent grapes to our most heralded variety, Cabernet Sauvignon. Our 2018 vintage teems with bright tropical fruit, honeydew and kiwi with delightful impressions of lemon meringue pie and baking spices.
