The Mascot is a Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon made from distinct hillside vineyards; specifically, the younger vines of BOND, Harlan Estate, and Promontory. It started out as a small project shared among the family, winemaking team, and close friends. Drawing fruit from blocks of recently replanted vineyards, The Mascot shares a glimpse into the evolution of its parent estates: a youthful snapshot of their future

About the wine

Tasting notes

Predominantly Cabernet blended alongside Cabernet Franc, Merlot & Petit Verdot. Dark fruits and minerality flirt with aromas of pecan pie, cocoa, marshmallow, tobacco leaf, roasted fig leaf, graphite and a gentle meatiness. The palate is supremely balanced and finely layered with great depth and concentration. Tightly packed dark fruits, spice and almond paste move with silkiness and serious intensity of fruit flavour, but it's ultimately dry, mineral and textured.
