(2009 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.
FLAVOUR & STYLE: Cassis and spicy plum, plus hints of chocolate and new leather. Bold, rich and flavourful. FOOD MATCH: Everyday: pasta with meat-and-tomato sauce. Takeout: roasted whole chicken. Fine Dining: standing rib roast.
Dont drink inmediately after taking a bite of spicy sausage.
