2020 Dakota Shy Cabernet Sauvignon
Moulds Family Vineyard

Tasting Notes

Super aromatic with expansive layers of violets, black cherry, currant, dried herbs and ripe plum. Luscious and layered in the mouth where dark fruit, herb and cocoa flavors push on with endless tiers of flavor over a sumptu-ously textured core. Shows Moulds classic combination of density, power and luxurious texture. Totally delicious.

The Moulds Family Vineyard

Steve and Betsy Moulds planted the 11-acre Moulds Family Vineyard in Napa Valley’s Oak Knoll District in 2000. Committed to excellence in farming and a strong relationship with Dakota Shy, Steve and Betsy ensure that their Cabernet fruit allows us to craft a standout wine every vintage.

Steve left us in the summer of 2021. He was a beloved inspiration for the Dakota Shy team and is much missed. We are proud to make wines from the vineyard that he planted, nurtured and whose legacy of excellence will forever be tied to him.

Winemaker Tom Garrett, sources from 5 distinct blocks on Moulds property and has made a vineyard-designated Dakota Shy Moulds Family Vineyard bottling every year since 2012. The flavor range, texture and power make the Moulds Family Vineyard Cabernet a perennial favorite of ours and of our Dakota Shy family.
