Vineyard Notes
2013 proved to be an excellent year in Napa Valley. It was slightly warmer than 2012, resulting in an overall earlier growing season. Lower than normal rainfall paired with moderate spring weather brought early bud break and bloom. Sunny skies throughout the summer months led to early veraison and harvest. Warm daytime temperatures followed by cool nights produced evenly ripened fruit with ideal hang time.
Production Notes
Rolando’s goal is to embrace the true character of this varietal and not squander its natural bold structure. As much tannin is extracted as possible before being aged in 100% new French oak barrels.
Tasting Notes
Deep ruby red in color, with notes of ripe blackberry, licorice, fresh ground pepper, and a hint of toasted oak. On the palate, it exhibits flavors of black cherry, fennel, and spices, with structured tannins and excellent depth and concentration.
Food Pairing Notes
This wine is already a meal in a glass. Aromas of smoked brisket make us want to drive down to Texas for some BBQ. Alternatively, jump on a plane to Rome for some rigatoni with spicy sausage.
