2015 Hommage Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley, Tenma Vineyard


Layer upon layer of complex aromas, from brooding dark fruits to subtle aromas of the forest cedar. On the palate, dark fruits open up to cassis focused flavors, a touch of cocoa alongside espresso beans. The tannins are powerful and persistent balancing the wine's graceful natural acidity and texture.

Vineyard Notes


Tenma Vineyard is located in the foothills of Mount St. Helena northeast of the town of Calistoga. These 40 acres of rugged land are part of an alluvial fan spilling out from the Palisades Mountains in the northeast corner of the Napa Valley. The rocky terrain is well-drained with a very sparse topsoil which is a perfect combination for growing world-class Cabernet Sauvignon when combined with the climate of Napa Valley. The low grape yields of these old vines result in highly concentrated wines with an elegance and complexity rarely seen, even within the famous Napa Valley. These grapes have proven to be a worthy backbone for the flagship Hommage Cabernet Sauvignon and are the reason that wine has become the pinnacle of Clos Pegase.

Winemaker Notes


Fruit from all of our Estate vineyards was harvested in the cool of the night, giving the opportunity to achieve a natural prolonged cold soak period prior to the onset of fermentation; this practice gently extracts color and tannins from the grape skins during fermentation while eliminating harsher seed tannin extraction into the new wine. Extended maceration on the skins following primary fermentation further refined the ripe tannins and helped to stabilize color. After pressing, malolactic conversion occurred in barrel. The final blend was assembled in tank in late May of 2017 ahead of its bottling in early June of that year.
