2019 Seven Apart Summit
The climb to the Summit is never easy. It takes perseverance and only the best ever make it. Indulge in a wine that celebrates those worthy of the trek and want to experience the thrill of reaching the top. Selected from the best barrels from our mountain top Stags Ridge Vineyard 1,475 feet above Napa, this wine is worth the journey. Only 4 barrels are produced and available to select members by invitation only.Learn More

"If you can believe it, the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Summit is even better and can be thought of as a hypothetical blend of the Shale and Basalt releases, with the elegance of the Shale and the power of the Basalt. Lots of cassis, raspberries, iron, savory herbs, and lead pencil notes emerge on the nose, and this beauty hits the palate with full-bodied richness, a deep, layered mid-palate, and enough building tannins to warrant 3-5 years of bottle age. This lengthy, insanely good 2019 will have 20-25+ years of longevity."
2019 Seven Apart Basalt
As we celebrate the glorious mountain Atlas Peak that is home to our Stags Ridge Vineyard, we pay homage to its geological makeup. Basalt rocks are formed from volcanic activity, dark, fine grained and quite hard. This namesake wine shares those qualities and accentuates the bolder and richer side of mountain grown Cabernet Sauvignon.Learn More

"A bigger, richer wine, the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Basalt has a similar darker cherry, plum, and currant-driven core of fruit as well more minerality, iron, and roasted herb notes with time in the glass. The palate is on another level and is full-bodied, deep, rich, and concentrated, with incredible tannins as well as balance. This is pure Napa Valley Mountain Cabernet. Hide bottles for 2-4 years, and it's going to have 25 years or more of overall longevity. Bravo!"
"Notes of ripe black and blue fruit, sage, chocolate and pencil shavings with touches of flowers and nut shells. Full-bodied and dry with an array of polished, fine-grained tannins, succulent fruit and a velvety texture. Long, mineral finish. Will soften with age and deliver something really outstanding. Try in 2024 and onwards."
2019 Seven Apart Shale
Seven Apart Shale is an expression of our estate vineyard located high atop Atlas Peak, seven miles up the road from the Seven Apart winery. We call the vineyard Stags Ridge, as it is perched above the rock outcroppings that give the famed Stags Leap area of Napa Valley its name. Like the rock formation after which it is named, Shale—the wine—is layered, fine-grained, and highly structured. While the fruit from this challenging, high elevation site always produces wine with great power and intensity, Shale is crafted to showcase the softer, more detailed side of the estate.Learn More

"The 2019 Seven Apart Shale is distinguished in this range by its bright red-toned fruit and floral profile, both of which help convey an impression of elegance that works well with the wine's mid-weight structure and overall feel. I especially like the energy and vibrancy here."
— Vinous, Antonio Galloni

"Opaque purple-black in color, the 2019 Seven Apart Expedition erupts from the glass with explosive scents of boysenberry preserves, blueberry pie and Black Forest cake, plus suggestions of molten chocolate, licorice, tar and violets, with a waft of sandalwood. The full-bodied palate is full-on rich and decadent, exuding layer upon layer of opulent black and blue fruit preserves with bags of exotic spice accents and a long, fragrant finish. Pure hedonism. It is tantalizingly delicious right now, but give it 3-4 years in bottle to blow off that puppy fat, and drink it over the next 25 years. 98+ Points"
— Robert Parker Wine Advocate, Lisa Perrotti-Brown
"Big, bold, tarry notes take on a mellower toasted marshmallow and dark chocolate for a breathtaking adventure of flavor and texture. Black fruit melts across the mouth. Well-built from the inside-out, a core of minerality is surrounded by fig preserves, dried violets, and a blackberry intensity. Tannins are pronounced, with a savory slide of satin meatiness. This wine is certainly on another level. 98 points"
