V. Sattui sits in the heart of Napa Valley’s “red wine country,” where the region’s greatest Cabernets, Merlots and Zinfandels are made. No less than four vineyard-designated Cabernet Sauvignons are produced each year, including the always spectacular Preston Vineyard and Morisoli Vineyard Cabernets, and up to seven single-vineyard Zinfandels as well, most notably from Black-Sears Vineyard on Howell Mountain. Our Henry Ranch in Carneros produces lovely Pinot Noir and Merlot.

Sweetly scented with cherry fruit and notes of clove and cinnamon, our estate-grown Pinot Noir from our cool Carneros vineyard at Henry Ranch is deeply flavored and complex.
Some of California’s most sought-after and expensive wines come out of the Rutherford AVA, the historical core of the Napa Valley and from where V. Sattui has been producing Preston Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignons for more than thirty-three years.
This was V. Sattui's thirty-first vintage of fine Cabernets produced from this tiny Rutherford vineyard.
This lovely hillside Cabernet shows expressive, mountain-bred fruit flavors of crushed berry, cassis and plum punctuated by bright herbal notes and cedar.
"Opulent ...Seductive ...Complex"
This premium proprietary blend which we have named Paradiso (Pahr-a DEEZ-0h) consists of Cabernet Sauvignon (89%), Merlot (8%) and Petit Verdot (3%). This is a profoundly complex and deeply scented wine, where both the grape varieties and the regions from which they came are distinctly expressed.
A PLATINUM MEDAL Cab that is sure to please. Consume now, or allow to age in your cellar and this cab will soon become your favorite as well and capture the attention of even the most discerning of wine connoisseurs.
"Bramble, vanilla and berry fruit aromas are all present in the nose of this 2010 single vineyard Zinfandel. Throughout the palate cherry, plum, and blueberry come together as a trio to form the core of this wines gloriously dry flavor profile. This Zinfandel has a lengthy finish which shows off sour cherry, minerals, earth, espresso, and black pepper.
The ‘09 Napa Valley Cabernet is a perfect example of concentration and intensity. Dark, brooding and inky, this blend of Cabernets from Stagecoach, Henry, Preston and Vittorio’s Vineyards—along with 3% Petit Verdot —even at 3½ years old, is still coming out of its barrel-bound slumber. The aromas of black fruits are clearly there in the nose, promising richer rewards with additional aging. The ripe fruit flavors are simmering under a blanket of moderate tannins from 18 months in new French oak.
Our Family Cabernet is always a wine that you don’t have to wait on to develop and that you can open any day of the week. It’s usually always made from Napa Valley grapes and is often a blend; but what we try to achieve is a soft, appealing style of Cabernet that’s drinkable now while it’s young.
ANCIENT VINE ZINFANDEL
Nestled in the upper reaches of the Russian River Valley and lying within the Chalk Hill AVA, these 80 year old vines produce an earthy, complex Zin with a fiery streak of black pepper and layer upon layer of complexity. Just begging to be paired with a pepper crusted rib eye.
