About Our Wines
At Flying Lady, we strive to craft wines exhibiting a deft balance of minerality, acidity, and structure, while remaining fully expressive of the soil and vines from which they came. We set out to create our wines with an uncompromising commitment to handcraft the best single-vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon possible within Napa Valley—wines that are immediately recognizable as being from Napa Valley, but that surprise you with their elegance and complexity. Our vineyard selections, coupled with strict vineyard practices, wise pick decisions, and meticulous winemaking methods, result in wines with amazing color, soft tannins, and bright lively acidity that leave an amazing finish while maintaining complexity.
2016 Flying Lady Cabernet Sauvignon
Flying Lady’s 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon from the L’Attitude Vineyard in Napa Valley’s Oak Knoll District captures the essence of this incredible vintage. A cooler August combined with protection provided by the Mayacamas mountains extended the growing season and let the grapes develop slowly which produced a highly aromatic wine. It’s loaded with dark current and plum fruits framed in sweet spices—it’s raw power meets pure elegance. This vintage has the stuffing of a wine from the famed 2013 vintage but with softer tannins and more approachability at this stage. The dark current and plum fruit is balanced to let savory and mineral notes peek through, giving it great clarity. Look for this wine to put on even more weight as it ages and be a great addition to your cellar whether you choose to hold or drink soon.
2015 Flying Lady Cabernet Sauvignon
More streamlined and deft than other 2015 Napa Valley reds, the 2015 Flying Lady Cabernet Sauvignon from the L’Attitude Vineyard in Napa Valley’s Oak Knoll District carries a lofty presence. At once, its notes of classic black currant, sweet spice, and a gentle hint of anise combine with a balance that is exquisite and fine; not velvet, more like glossy silk. This wine’s structure ensure that it will age with confidence for 8 to 9 years but make it eminently approachable and enjoyable immediately.
