The Mascot is a Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon made from distinct hillside vineyards, specifically the younger vines of BOND, Harlan Estate, and Promontory. It started as a small project shared among the familymaking team, and close friends. Drawing fruit from blocks of recently replanted vineyards, The Mascot shares a glimpse into the evolution of its parent estates: a youthful snapshot of their future. Bill Harlan's son Will Harlan is the winemaker. 90% Cabernet Sauvignon with Petit Verdot & Cab Franc.

In 2018 healthy rainfall in March and April preceded a benevolent summer, whose mildness was interrupted only briefly by a few warming periods. The fruit of the young vines maintained a measured balance that gave the team little indication that harvest was imminent. The ethereal power of the vintage reveals itself first in the deep, brooding aromas of dark fruit, black tea, and herbal notes. The texture expands around a lifted structure, as powdery tannins gently resolve. This diffused, enigmatic softness is anchored on the mid-palate by a gratifying density, which prepares the senses for a flourish of hidden energy and vivid detail that illuminates the finish. Extremely Limited!
