His family founded Caymus Vineyards in Napa Valley. In 2014, Joe formed Copper Cane Wine & Provisions, with a focus on innovation and genuine craftsmanship, Copper Cane Wines & Provisions houses a collection of brands that are crafted to offer a touch of luxury for everyday indulgence. QUilt is one of those innovative wines. Drawing from a patchwork of six prime Napa Valley AVAs to create full-bodied, rich, and decadent wines, Quilt exemplifies the classic structure of wines from the region, while the blending of fruit from a variety of vineyards allows the wines to maintain more complexity and a better style consistency from vintage to vintage.
Fruit was sourced from Oakville, St Helena, Atlas Peak, Coombsville, Calistoga, and Howell Mountain for this 2017 Quilt Cabernet The winemaking process started by picking fruit at optimum maturity. Once in the cellar, lots were separated by individual vineyard. The wine underwent extended maceration and each lot was re-evaluated before moving the wine to classic Bordeaux and Burgundy barrels (70% new oak, 30% seasoned) where it underwent malolactic fermentation. The wine was racked every 4 to 6 months until blending 20 months later. The final blend came about after numerous blind tastings to create a seamless quilt from a rich patchwork of wines.
Wine Spectator just scored this 92 points saying "Frankly ripe, with a vivid beam of creamed plum, açaí and boysenberry fruit flavors, glistening with vanilla-accented toast through a polished finish. Aimed squarely at the hedonist crowd. Drink now through 2022."
