Tedeschi Family Winery released their first vintage in 2004 from their family 2-acre dry farmed vineyard just north of Calistoga. This vineyard is planted entirely to Cabernet Sauvignon and their wines are 100% Varietal. Emil Tedeschi’s Napa Cabernet is a very Bordeaux style wine in that the grapes are picked at lower brix, the alcohol is lower and it is not the huge fruit driven Cabernet''s that you can commonly find in the Napa area. Tedeschi''s Cabernets typically see 36 months in oak which is longer than many wineries, but the wines are not oak driven by any means. The reason for this is his barrel program incorporates mostly neutral French Oak and some American oak. In addition these wines are not fined before bottling. The owner is the winemaker and this is a "garagist" winery as Napa County allows winery garages to become bonded within the town of Calistoga.
