Deux Chevaux Vineyard
About the Vineyard:
The Deux Chevaux Vineyard is a 60-acre parcel situated north-east of the town of Yountville, in the Yountville Appellation. The vineyard is bordered by two waterways; Conn Creek runs the length of the eastern border of the vineyard and the Napa River runs along the western corner. This vineyard is planted to Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, Merlot, Chardonnay and Malbec. This vineyard is influenced to a great degree by the San Francisco Bay and the early morning fog and late afternoon winds that it generates. Tamber Bey Vineyards currently produces eight wines from this vineyard.
Additional Winemaker Notes:
Barrel aged in 57% new oak for 19 months.

Food Pairing Suggestions:
This full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon is meant for food pairings that match its body and aromatic characteristics. If paired properly, it can produce the meal of a lifetime. With its depth of acid and tannins, it will pair well with fattier meats like beef steaks, beef and pork roasts, venison, lamb and hamburgers. Experiment with mushroom dishes and meals seasoned with herbs and pepper. Hard cheeses are a nice compliment too.
