About the Winemaker:
The vineyard is managed by this trio, each taking a different role in orchestrating the winemaking process. The family focuses on sustainable and biodynamic vineyard practices for their 4 acre estate vineyards and handcrafting complex, balanced and terroir-driven Cabernet Sauvignon. Through their consulting business, the family works with world-class winemakers in many wine regions and have had the unique opportunity to evaluate how different climates, farming practices, rootstocks and grape varieties (and their clones) influence wine.

Rahn Estate Vineyard
About the Vineyard:

Rahn Estate was established in 1998. After working for a consulting company evaluating soils and designing vineyards, traveling to Napa finally caught up with Brian Rahn and he took a leap of faith and acquired the 20-acre property. Certified soil scientist, Brian was attracted by the gravely volcanic soils and high elevation of the site and designed the hillside estate vineyards on the Howell Mountain by hand-selecting Cabernet Sauvignon root stocks and clones to fit the micro-climates. The terroir of Howell Mountain allows for nuanced and concentrated fruit flavors and balanced tannin.

Pair the 2012 Rahn Estate Cabernet Sauvignon with grilled, roasted or stewed beef dishes, and braised lamb or venison. Game meats all pair wonderfully with this wine as do dishes with eggplant, mushrooms or pungent herbs. Also experiment with aromatic cheeses like Roquefort, Blue and Camembert.
