Winery: “A dry winter and spring, along with warm late winter temperatures, brought an early bud-break and flowering under good conditions. The summer growing season in all of Napa Valley was amazing with some usual heat spikes. There were early wildfires and then another round in September that we were fortunate to be in locations that were minimally impacted. We harvested from mid-September through October 3rd. The fruit arrived at the winery extremely healthy and with an amazing balance of chemistry and flavors.
The deep purple color of the wine extends all the way to the rim of the glass and gives way to an explosive nose that is the essence of Napa Valley, black fruit, dark cocoa, coffee and deep plum. The wine is thick, rich and full on the palate with beautiful balance between fruit, tannin, acidity, oak and alcohol. The flavors of chocolate, blackberry, bay laurel and sweet French oak penetrate the palate and last for minutes. There is strength and power but constrained with bright acidity, fruit and just the right amount of balancing tannin. The wine is savory and chewy as well as bright and vibrant”
20 months in 88% French oak and 12% American oak, 22% of the barrels were new.
