Vintage and Wine

"Classic" and "perfect" are just two accolades being bestowed upon the 2012 Napa Valley growing season and harvest. Textbook conditions saw near-ideal spring bud break, steady flowering, even fruit set, and a lengthy stretch of warm days and cool and often foggy nights during the long summer months. Late and light rains held off until Napa Valley's treasured wine grapes found optimal ripeness, bringing exceptional quality to the crush pad and into the cellar.

Tasting Notes

The color of this wine is a testament to this philosophy; it is deep, dark and mesmerizing. Dried cranberries and tamarind pop on the nose, followed by spices, minerals, wet stone, ash and beeswax. Entry on the palate is gentle, while evolving in the mid-palate and finishing strong with bright minerality. Upon the second sip, you’ll experience decadence, richness and luscious fruit with silky smooth tannins.
