Macauley Vineyards

Macauley Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (2013)

An orchestra of a vintage — the nose an overture of raspberry preserves, cocoa, and sweet oak vanillin while the palate offers brooding black cherry, currant, and plum notes; The enjoyment is supported by a finely balanced acid and textural tannin that lifts the back palate and resonates for well over a minute.

The Macauley Vinyard label was originally established in St. Helena in the early 1980s by Ann Macauley Watson and for several years produced a very well received late harvest Sauvignon Blanc with help from renowned winemaker, Ric Forman.

In the late summer of 2000, Ann’s son Mac went to work for Rudd Estate in Oakville. After several months of winery work and education he was inspired to revive the family label, and, working with winemaker and childhood friend Kirk Venge, crushed his first grapes in October 2001.

Mac and Kirk have one goal: to source the highest quality fruit in Napa Valley and make wines of extraordinary depth and personality. The grapes they choose showcase the terroir of the vineyards and create a remarkable wine-drinking experience.


Cedar, cranberry and currant are all represented, along a dusting of dried herbs and blackberry pie. This ripe, full-bodied wine never slips through the cracks, maintaining itself with grace under pressure.
