Description

Named after its original purpose – a “borrow pit” is used to gather materials for a construction site elsewhere. In this case, stones from this vineyard’s location were used in the construction of the nearby Rector Dam in 1946.

    Wine Spectator

    "Inviting, with plum sauce and blackberry puree notes cruising along, lined with subtle cocoa, smoldering tobacco and loam accents. Reveals a flash of menthol through the finish, while the fruit holds center stage. Best from 2021 through 2030. 500 cases made.” - James Molesworth

Wine & Vintage Details

Tasting Note

In the glass, pitch purple with legs that stain. On the nose, blackberry, cherry, French roasted coffee exude. On the palate, the blackberry notes mix with cassis which lead to deeper vanilla notes. Firm tannins balance the medium to full body. Overall, a powerful but elegant expression of Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon.

Vineyard & Winemaking Details

Oakville

Vineyard

Located near the town of Yountville, Borrow Pit is nestled in the Oakville AVA, and sees daytime temperatures slowly climb as the cooling morning fog recedes south to San Pablo Bay. This significant diurnal shift allows the grapes to maintain their acidity, which is essential to balancing the ripe, rich flavors as they develop during hot afternoons.
