  • Faced with low Cabernet yields during the 2014 harvest, Covenant sourced extra Merlot and Petit Verdot from the vineyards of partner Leslie Rudd's estate, re-jiggered the amount of Cabernet to 57% and christened, sorry, renamed their flagship Cabernet as Napa Valley Red. Native yeast fermented, it spent 18 months in 50% new French oak, and was bottled unfiltered, unfined. KOSHER
