Caterwaul Cabernet Sauvignon 2017, Regusci Vineyard, Stag's Leap District, California

Caterwaul is a project between 6th generation Napa native, Matt Hardin and ‘Top Gun’ winemaker Thomas Rivers Brown. Matt is a partner in Barbour Vineyard Management and is also married to Jim Regusci’s daughter, so when it came time to source premium grapes, they found their favorite rows of Jim’s prime cut of Stag’s Leap District for this wine. Thomas and Matt had worked together for many years over many different projects and a friendship was developed. Out of that friendship the idea of working together, utilizing the strengths of the other, Caterwaul was born. “Full-bodied, rich and opulent in the mouth, the generous blue and black fruit flavors are well supported by plush tannins and just enough freshness, finishing long and spicy.”
