The Mascot Red Blend Napa Valley
The Mascot
United States - California - Napa Valley

The Mascot is a Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon made from distinct hillside vineyards; specifically the younger vines of BOND, Harlan Estate, and Promontory. It started out as a small project shared among the family, winemaking team, and close friends. Drawing fruit from blocks of recently replanted vineyards, The Mascot shares a glimpse into the evolution of its parent estates: a youthful snapshot of their future.

The subtle, ethereal power of the vintage reveals itself first in the deep, brooding aromas of dark fruit, black tea, and herbal notes. The texture expands around a lifted structure, as powdery tannins gently resolve. This diffused, enigmatic softness is anchored on the mid-palate by a gratifying density, which prepares the senses for a flourish of hidden energy and vivid detail that illuminates the finish

Napa Valley
Wine Type
100% Cabernet Sauvignon
The winemaking teams evaluate the young-vine lots at the blending table between 6 and 14 months after fermentation, selecting the finest for inclusion in The Mascot.
In total, The Mascot is aged in barrel for nearly three years prior to bottling and another 18 months prior to release.
The winemaking teams vinify the grapes from each propery in accordance with the character of their land. For aging the wines, Harlan Estate and BOND use new and nuetral French oack barrels, while Promontory employs larger casks made of Austrian oak.
