Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
The vineyards utilized for this unique Cabernet are Gerlach Hammond, Perata, Rocca, and Villa Amorosa; vineyards typically used in the final blends of our Il Barone Cabernet Sauvignon and La Castellana Super Tuscan Blend.
Production Notes
Quattro is the result of the winemaker's instinct, quick thinking, and a little bit of luck. On October 15, 2012, after harvesting Cabernet Sauvignon from 4 of the Castello's top vineyards, a small quantity from each was left over due to the 4 intended fermentation vessels coming full. Knowing that the fruit was all of great quality, he decided to ferment the leftovers together in a single small tank. Upon tasting the wine just as the fermentation was finishing up, we knew something special had occurred, and we proclaimed that the "Quattro" warranted a unique bottling. No blending has been done with this wine since that fateful day the grapes were plucked from the 4 distinct vineyard sites from across the Napa Valley.
Winemaker Notes
2012 will be a vintage to remember. Near perfect weather conditions resulted in a rare combination of high quality fruit and an abundant crop load. 2012 promises to be truly exceptional; with wines of well-structured tannins, rich concentration, and developed aromatics defining the vintage.—Brooks Painter, Director of Winemaking

This was my first tasting of Quattro. I ordered the wine after receiving an email and reading about it. The story IOC how it came to be is as interesting as the taste. Quattro is a complex and full bodied cab. I am glad o ordered extra!
