Postmark Wine is named for the official seal traditionally stamped on letters to indicate a significant place and date. Created under the Duckhorn Portfolio, Postmark Wine partners with the finest growers in Napa Valley to craft a wine that showcases the region’s extraordinary Cabernet Sauvignon. This wine reflects the character of its iconic Napa Valley roots.  The winemaker on this project is Christopher Dean, who in 2015, after completing his degree in viticulture and enology from UC Davis, joined the winemaking team at the Duckhorn Portfolio, where he quickly established himself as a rising talent. He was promoted from production assistant to Decoy assistant winemaker to Decoy associate winemaker and ultimately production winemaker for Duckhorn’s Waterfowl Winery. “I’ve been able to work alongside and learn from the winemakers at Duckhorn Vineyards, Paraduxx, Goldeneye, Kosta Browne, Calera, and more. It’s amazing. They are some of the greatest winemakers in America. It’s been incredible. I’ve just tried to be a sponge and soak up all the knowledge I possibly can.” 

In 2018, Christopher was given the opportunity to make the debut vintage of the Postmark Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. “I love the vision behind Postmark,” he adds. “It reminds me of what inspired me to become a winemaker—the idea that even if someone has never been to Napa Valley, we can make a wine that will transport them there, that will give them a taste of a magical place, and a moment in time.”

The 2018 is made of 96% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Merlot and 1% Petit Verdot. From its deep crimson color to its velvety texture and alluring layers of fresh blackberry, boysenberry and cassis, you can taste the warm Napa Valley sun in this luxurious Cabernet. On the palate, hints of violet, lavender and dark chocolate add to the delicious depth of this wine, with a pleasing touch of acidity bringing brightness and poise to a lush fruit-driven finish. Aged 12 Months in 100% French oak barrels, 40% new oak.

The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon is a soft, fruity wine to drink now and over the next handful of years. Pliant and supple, the 2018 offers lovely immediacy. Succulent red cherry, red plum, spice, lavender, cedar and tobacco all flesh out in this effortless, forward Cabernet.

As the debut vintage of this wine, this impresses in its easygoing nature of soft, smooth tannins and accents of tobacco, dried herb and earth. Sourced from multiple appellations, it finishes in bursts of blackberry and dark chocolate flavors.
