The Cabernet Sauvignon-based wine is composed of the finest lots from the vineyard. Winemaker Benoit Touquette has a lot to choose from, as the site, with its multiple blocks, elevations, facings and diverse soils, has character in spades. Moonracer bears the unmistakable mark of this stimulating vineyard, as well as the Stags Leap District. Strong, powerful, yet elegant, with refined tannins and plenty of depth. What Benoit calls "intellectual." "It's a wine that will appeal to both international and American palates. It walks the line, combining characteristics typical of northern and southern Napa Valley. It's got plenty of fruit but also layered flavors, depth and complexity."

Wine AdvocateBlended of 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon The Estate-Moonracer features compelling red and black currant notes laced with sandalwood, cinnamon stick, cedar chest, cigar boxes, dried leaves and dusty soil. The muscular, medium to full-bodied palate fills the mouth with lively red and black fruit layers, framed by wonderfully fine, pixelated tannins, finishing long and spicy.
