(2013 Vintage) Cranking up his own favorite B Side tracks, winemaker Greg Kitchens settles in to craft wines of great depth and character that can be enjoyed in their youth, but like classic songs, age gracefully to be enjoyed for years to come. The grapes comprising our two B Side offerings come from the "flip" side of Napa: vineyards tucked into the benchlands, slopes and hillsides of eastern Napa Valley near the scenic Silverado Trail. Vines in these areas grow in thin volcanic soils, yielding small crops of deeply concentrated fruit with classic dark berry and cassis flavors. This exceptional fruit is complemented by extended aging in primarily French oak barrels.
Wine Enthusiast(2010 Vintage) From Don Sebastiani & Sons, a dramatically ripe, concentrated Cabernet, with fine, firm tannins framing blackberry, blueberry and cassis flavors. Really easy to drink now, and the price is quite good for the quality.
