ABOUT THE WINE
Sequoia Grove is located in the gem of the famed Napa Valley, in what’s known as the Rutherford Bench. The Bench is a very unique geological formation, as it is consisted of a special composition of soils and rocks, and is considered one of the most diverse terroirs in the world. With a mix of alluvial loams, limestone, chalk and red & black volcanic soils, it’s at the prime area for producing wine. As the legendary Napa pioneer André Tchelistcheff quoted, “it takes Rutherford dust to grow great Cabernet.” Founded in 1979, the estate is one of Napa’s cult estates for producing world-class Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay. 

TASTING NOTES
A real terroir wine of Napa Valley, despite not being shy at all with its incredible opulence. Concentrated notes of blackcurrants, strawberry jam, black mulberries, blackberries and blueberries, with a spicy, fresh eucalyptus edge. The intensity of the tannins are married to the velvety, chocolatey texture of the wine. It gets more delectable with the cocoa, tobacco and clove notes coming from the premium French barriques which were used. 14% Cabernet Franc and 11% Merlot help support the structure and complexity of the wine. 

FOOD PAIRING
Southern barbecued ribs, lamb shank casserole with baked beans and chili con carne.

FRIARWOOD SAYS
The estate barn is blessed to be surrounded by some of the last remaining groves of huge, majestic sequoia trees. It is also known to house Napa’s first underground cellar.
