Majuscule, c'est plus grand que minuscule.
Big, small. Bold, timid. There really is no counterpart to the word minuscule in English. In French the opposite is majuscule, literally meaning a capital letter. Or in Latin, something rather large though not quite enormous.
The juxtaposition of big and small embodies our philosophy. We make big yet elegant and balanced wines from the best single-vineyards in the Napa Valley. Our wines are produced in very small lots with an intense focus on quality.
We're four friends who met on a couples' blind date in 2008 and share a love for living in the Napa Valley, our pets, traveling and, of course, wine. In 2018 we started Majuscule Wine to make wines from amazing vineyards that are focused, fruit-forward and very approachable.
We only sell our wines directly to customers on this site. We offer private tastings by appointment in Napa and the Phoenix area. Please email us for information.

2018 Mount Veeder
We made only 55 cases of this 100% Cabernet Franc from the Wildcat Vineyard on Mount Veeder. Shortly after barreling it in November 2018, we knew we had a gorgeous wine and it continues to wow us. With a rich red color, the nose is of violets and dark fruit. The flavors start with mixed berries and cherries followed by black pepper and savory notes. This wine is gracious and supple with a balanced acidity and tannin structure. Aged for 14 months in French oak.
2019 Rosé of
Our first rosé is a unique and rare bottling of 100% Cabernet Franc, typically used for red wines. We sourced the grapes from the prestigious vineyard in the Carneros region on the southern end of the Napa Valley. The grapes were cold soaked and whole-cluster pressed to create a vibrant salmon color with a beautiful nose of white flowers, apricots and peaches. The wine is lush and punctuated by delicious red berry flavors and well-balanced acid. Only 65 cases produced.
2018 Mount Veeder
Available August 2020
Sourced from two steep blocks in the Wildcat Vineyard on Mount Veeder, our Cabernet Sauvignon has a lively and intense nose, leading in with a hint of fresh violets and dark fruits. On the palate, flavors of bright red cherries and ripe blackberries highlight, with subtle flavor of cranberry. With a full-bodied mouthfeel and moderate tannins, the flavors progressively include a spicy subtlety with dark chocolate, pepper and licorice, among others. Currently aging for 20 months in French oak.
