Fewer than 300 cases were produced of this organically farmed, single-vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley. The high-level of care and attention to detail that went into this bottle have lead to an incredibly pure expression of rich fruit flavors lifted by a noble and fine-grained tannic structure. This is drinking handsomely right now, but will continue to evolve over the next decade. Don't miss this amazing opportunity to experience a true cult wine from Napa Valley for an unbelievable price!

The Growing Season
2010 was another ideal growing season in the microclimate that is Mission Ridge Vineyard (despite challenges in the rest of Napa Valley). The summer was warm and dry, and harvest extended deep into October. Our 2010 Volta Cabernet Sauvignon is another great expression of what our beautiful vineyard and this unique vintage has to offer.
 
The Vineyard
It is our belief that great wine is made in the vineyard. Mission Ridge Vineyard hugs a southwest-facing slope at an elevation of nearly 720 feet above sea level. During the day, the ridge enjoys summer heat, but temperatures drop at night with cooler air coming in from the San Francisco Bay. The rocky, volcanic loam soil, high elevation and southwest exposure all combine to create a dynamic microclimate. The vineyard yields small clusters of intensely flavored grapes that ripen slowly and late into the growing season. Certified organic, the land is respectfully farmed, without the use of chemicals or insecticides. Each grape that finds its way into a bottle of Volta has been carefully nurtured and handpicked.
 
Tasting Notes
The wine is dark ruby in the glass with a translucent rim. Dark red fruits provide the backdrop of the fragrant bouquet as the wine’s soft silky texture compliment the bold rich flavors of black cherry, raspberries, currants and cocoa. Volta 2010 is rich and alive and provides a balanced and lingering finish on the palate.
 
The Winemaker
Massimo Monticelli is a fourth-generation winemaker. He first started picking and pruning grapes in his grandfather’s farm before he could even speak, and learned the family’s craft from his father, who has been making wine in California for over forty years. Massimo received degrees in Chemistry and Biology at the University of California at Irvine, before earning his Masters in Enology and Viticulture at UC Davis. With the ideal combination of education, hands-on experience and passion, Massimo’s appreciation for the distinct characteristic of each vineyard and vintage shines through in every bottle.
