Girard Cabernet Sauvignon
Initially founded in 1975 by Steve Girard, acquired in 2000 by Vintner Pat Roney. Girard is an ambitious, artisan winery that expresses the character of premier vineyard locations through high-quality, handcrafted, and stylistically diverse wines that match grape varieties with their ideal terroirs. Flagship wine, Artistry, is a classic Bordeaux-style blend sourced from prized vineyards in St. Helena, Oakville, Yountville, and Atlas Peak. Winemakers Marco DiGiulio and Glenn Hugo continue to receive the highest accolades from all corners of the trade press. With an almost fanatical attention to every single barrel of wine, Girard employs classic winemaking techniques: All of the fruit is hand sorted Red wines are cold soaked prior to fermentation Indigenous yeasts are used for the Chardonnay and each of the red wines All wines are aged in 100% French oak, except the Zinfandel and Petite Syrah which see 75% French and 25% American oak.
