Varietal
Red Wine Blend

Appellation
Napa Valley

Alcohol %
14.5

Vineyard Notes
Napa Valley's "sweet spot," fruit from the Oak Knoll AVA ripens slowly, maintaining freshness and aromatic lift, while developing a soft mouthfeel with balanced alcohol and acidity. The Coombsville AVA lends soft but significant tannins, which provide excellent structure and mouthfeel, along with underlying layers of earth and mineral flavors. Approachable yet, sophisticated and layered.
Production Notes
Once the grapes are destemmed, they are fermented in chilled steel tanks to preserve the fresh fruit and juicy flavors. This blend owes its rich elegance to 20 months of aging in 20% American oak and 30% new French oak. Although enjoyable upon release, this age-worthy wine will benefit from 8-10 years of cellaring.
Tasting Notes
Harmony in a glass, the bouquet has wisps of vanilla and caramel with ripe red fruits, violets, dried roses, white pepper, espresso, and coffee. Silky and elegant on the palate, the well-balanced flavors of black cherry, dried fig, and ripe plums, along with a kiss of oak, seamlessly integrate and carry though to the lingering finish.
Food Pairing Notes
Try pairing with pasta Bolognese. Or, for the vegetarian, grilled Portobello mushrooms in a red wine sauce. For a cheese course, serve Grana Padano, a cow's-milk cheese.
