2021 Dakota Shy Cabernet Sauvignon
Moulds Family Vineyard

Tasting Notes

Exotic dark fruits, plum, chocolate, vanilla and grilled brioche aromatics. Opulent core of fruit and texture that is framed by fine-grained tannin and juicy acidity. Wonderful interplay of herbs, dark fruit, spice. Broad and massive. This is a gorgeous, powerful, complex and hedonistic wine. Delicious now but will reward a decade in the cellar.

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, Betsy ensures that their Cabernet fruit allows us to craft a standout wine every vintage.

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.
