"An intense and concentrated red with notes of ripe blackberries, dark chocolate, wet stones and vanilla. Full-bodied and dry with an array of plush tannins, deep fruit and a touch of graphite. Long, velvety finish."

From time to time producers fall behind in sales and need to raise cash which is why TYPESETTER was created. The guys at Vinum Cellars are longtime member of Napa Valley's small community of grape growers and winemakers. Winemaker friends and growers routinely offer them grapes and wine before showing it to the market and when the wines are epic the jump at the opportunity and here they've blended multiple sources to offer an amazing wine at a cost 75% less than what it normally does.

This fine Cabernet Sauvignon was created from only very high end, hillside estate winery Cab producers in Calistoga (70%), Pritchard Hill (18.5%), Coombsville (10%) and Oak Knoll (1.5%). The wine was produced from three different estate sources and blended together to make a very complex, concentrated and dense wine that is everything you expect in a $100+ bottle from the Napa Valley, because this is what it is.
