After spending 30 years honing their expertise in Santa Barbara’s Burgundian and Rhone varieties, the second-generation Fess Parker family sought to build and expand upon Fess’s vision, using their long-term relationships to access some of the most prestigious, established, and diverse vineyard holdings in Napa Valley and fulfill their ambition to make top-quality Napa Cabernet

The 2014 vintage was the first for the Addendum project, with site-specific grape sources that range from the unmistakably high-elevation Stagecoach Vineyard to the historic prestige Rutherford AVA valley floor vineyard with its classic ‘Rutherford Dust’ terroir


Viticulture: Addendum’s exceptional wines are crafted solely from top Napa sites that can reveal distinctive Cabernet characteristics. Both the well-draining, rocky site at Stagecoach as well as the prestige valley floor Rutherford Vineyard were selected because of the beautiful wines their particular soils can generate when combined with low yields and experienced farming.


Winemaking: Grapes are 100% destemmed and hand-sorted. The must is  fermented in a static fermentor with one or two pump overs per day for 33-36 days. The wine is aged 28 months in French oak barrels, of which 67% are new.


Grape Varieties: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon


Tasting Notes: Complex aromas of ripe forest fruits and damson fill the glass, followed by hints of liquorice and a touch of cinammon and nutmeg. Full-bodied, rich palate, yet with fine, silky tannins and a balanced freshness. The wine opens up to reveal a plethora of savoury spices with air
