Wine Description

(2000 Vintage) The 21st century in the Napa Valley began as a virtually perfect growing season with uneventful spring and summer weather patterns. Nighttime temperatures were quite cool and overall, the 2000 vintage ripening season was unhurried and provided fruit with balanced acidity and finesse. Black currant and figs layered with almond and African violets. Rich, fruity mouth feel with a long lingering finish. Blend: 79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Cabernet Franc, 5% Merlot, 4% Petit Verdot
