Description

Dark garnet in color, and nearly black at the core, this full bodied Napa Cabernet entices the nose with wild raspberry, black cherry, cacao, cinnamon and peppercorns. The silky mouthfeel compounds with ripe blackberry, dark chocolate, cassis, currants, and black licorice. The wine’s remarkable structure will allow it to age over the next 20 plus years.

Vineyard Notes

"The 2013 growing season was ideal due to healthy vine stress brought on by drought conditions and nearly perfect weather throughout. This vintage will be one of the most heralded in recent history as the wines are explosively delicious, characterized by rich color, delicate aromas, silky mouthfeel and intense mouth-coating flavors.

Winemaker Notes

"Picked during the cool of the night, we hand sorted and destemmed the fruit into 1ton bins. With an extended cold soak we extracted optimal fruit and earth characteristics. Fermented for 22 days. Aged in 33% new french oak for 24 months"
