Slingshot Cabernet Sauvignon
Slingshot is a family effort shepherded by James Stewart, one of Napa Valley's next generation winemakers—a group of young men and women assuming central roles in legacy wine businesses. James joins his peers in focusing on issues surrounding sustainability, preservation, labor practices and maintaining family-owned businesses. Slingshot reflects his ambition to preserve a vital family enterprise and practice meaningful land stewardship—both while producing unpretentious fine wine. His sister, Caroline Stewart manages all production and recently became the winemaker for Slingshot.
Complex yet approachable, Slingshot has a bouquet of ripe raspberry, blueberry and plum. The palate is full and textured with notes of chocolate and wild currents, while balancing acidity and chewy tannins. The finish lingers with subtle notes of French oak. Slingshot is crafted to complement, not over-power, making this a welcome addition to any meal.
