  • 5 bottles of Napa Valley wine

The winning bidder will receive two bottles of 2014 Windfall Cabernet Sauvignon, two bottles of 2015 Windfall Cabernet Sauvignon and one bottle of 2014 Black Arrow Cabernet Sauvignon. These wines are extremely rare; only two barrels of each wine were made.

Jon Nathaniel is the dream project of a father and son: John Komes, founder of Napa Valley’s beloved Flora Springs Winery, and his son Nat, a Napa Valley native who has overseen operations at Flora Springs for more than 20 years.

Jon Nathaniel represents a return to John and Nat’s roots, to the small production, wine-without-compromise method of operating that defines artisan winegrowing.

A timeless wine from the famed Rutherford nested appellation, the Windfall Vineyard Cabernet is sourced from a small 2.2-acre block owned and farmed by the Komes family. The wine fermented partially in barrel, a labor-intensive practice which is only practicable because of the extremely small quantities produced.

Jon Nathaniel Black Arrow Cabernet Sauvignon is also sourced from family-owned vineyards. Fermented in stainless steel and aged in French oak for 20 months, the 2014 vintage is presented in a dramatic and stunning etched bottle.
