Perfect exposure to sunlight and tightly spaced vines brings great tension and concentration to this wine. Medium to full-bodied, the expressive terroir shines through in black cherries, cedar and fine-grained tannins. This ripe, airy gem is an easy drinking delight from a stunning hillside vineyard.

Gentle reader, it may surprise you to learn that many of the Napa Valley’s finest, highest-scoring wineries make wine from purchased fruit, and own no vineyards. Bond, Realm, and Schrader all fit this profile. Waypoint represents our relentless effort to stand shoulder to shoulder with this elite group of producers. With all of the mutually beneficial friendships and connections we’ve built over 22 years, we have no shortage of contacts with prime fruit to sell. In 2013, these networks paid off in the greatest way. Enter Tim Milos, our master oenologist and winemaker, who recently scored his first 100 point wine in The Wine Advocate. Tim makes all of our wines, from the Justice trio on down to Broken Spur. We know how talented he is, with an enviable CV featuring the likes of S. Anderson, Opus One, Rubissow, Girard, and Cliff Lede. Now it’s your turn to see what he can do, with these three STUNNING single-vineyard Cabernets. We’re offering them as a collectible 3-pack, for a special price for a limited time. You can only buy these wines here.

A chewy grip of leather, tobacco and black currant highlight this robust, full-bodied red. Structured and cohesive, it retains an enduring richness of vanilla and oak amidst more complex elements of graphite and crushed rock. Enjoy from 2028–2035.

The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Lowrey Vineyard Homestead comes from the New Frontier umbrella (owned by Alejandro Bulgheroni) and is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon that saw 20 months in 78% new French oak. This rich, satisfying Cabernet reveals a dense purple color, impressive blackcurrant and cassis fruits, notes of chocolate, tobacco, and earth, medium to full-bodied richness, and a great sense of minerality on the finish. Enjoy bottles over the coming 10-15 years.
