Winemaker's Notes

(From 2012 Vintage) We sourced our grapes from vineyards throughout Napa Valley, collecting fruit from several locations to show the diversity and depth of this world-renowned wine region. A portion of the wine comes from Rutherford, where the famous Rutherford Dust gives distinctive notes of cocoa powder, juicy fruit and complex tannins. The mountain vineyards provide rich aromatics, briary intensity and a bright pop of boysenberry. The northern Napa Valley floor vineyards complement the profile, providing rich texture and luscious tannins.

    A deep purple, red ruby hue. The nose shows elegant black plum fruit with layers of rose petals, toffee, chocolate, vanilla and anise, along with hints of eucalyptus. On the palate, the wine is bright and well balanced with a rich mouthfeel. Flavors of ripe blackberry, plum and black cherry are followed by notes of nutmeg and cloves, and a long, dark finish with soft, chalky tannins.
