BACKGROUND

Taub Family Vineyards was born out of a dream four generations in the making. It’s a story that began during a pivotal time in U.S. wine history, just days after Prohibition was repealed, and one that is far from completion. The latest chapter is now unfolding as Proprietor Marc D. Taub and his son Jake explore some of California’s most exciting appellations.

Wine has always been the centerpiece of the family’s narrative and livelihood and Marc D. Taub grew up with a deep appreciation for the art of winemaking. His grandfather Marty played an instrumental role in the wine business from the early 1930s, and Marc’s father David later joined Marty’s side to build upon his dream. Marc always knew he would follow in their footsteps. This came to fruition in 2013, when Marc acquired Napa Valley producer Heritance – which later evolved to Taub Family Vineyards. The winery represents some of the best sites in Napa Valley. Each wine embodies a pure expression of its respective AVA and vineyard microsite and are crafted for elegance and extraordinary balance.

The valley oak pictured on the label, a familiar part of any Napa Valley landscape, honors the family's provenance, while the diamond at the base of the tree represents the seed planted for the legacy of generations to come.

TERROIR & VINTAGE NOTES

The grapes are from a 4 acre block within the Beckstoffer Vineyard Georges III. The soils are bale, clay loam with gravel. The vines are 22 years on average, with Clonal Selection of 4, 337 and 7.

WINEMAKING

Hand sorted, fully destemmed grapes. Small, closed fermenters with both native and select Bordeaux yeast isolates are used.

AGEING

Malolactic fermentation in barrel, with total 24 months aging, in 100% new French Oak. Each bottle is individually numbered.

TASTING NOTES

Deep garnet color. On the nose, juicy black cherry, plum, herbs and spice. The wine reveals decadent layers, firm tannins and refined toasted oak structure. A rich, harmonious and balanced palate creates a seamless and age-worthy wine.
