Winemakers Josh Phelps and Carlo Trinchero were raised in the small, winegrowing town of St. Helena, in Napa Valley, California. Having a serious love of wine in their DNA inspired the duo to break away from their own winemaking families and begin producing their own wine. Taken Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon was the first wine they created, released in 2010. Each succeeding vintage represents another step they have "taken" on this journey.

James SucklingDark plums, blackberries, licorice, chocolate, ripe stems, orange rind, hot stones, dust and coffee beans. Full-bodied with grippy tannins, some nice sweet-and-sour character, a fresh line of acidity and a medium chewy finish. A blend of cabernet sauvignon and merlot. Drink in 2020.

Wine EnthusiastA blend of 44% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Zinfandel, 15% Merlot and 13% Petite Sirah, this delivers soft, generous flavors of graham cracker, plum and blackberry. A framework of dusty tannins is counterbalanced by approachable lushness on the palate.
