Expressive and appealing, this full-bodied wine is bursting with richness and texture.
Experience our traditional aromas of strawberry, cola, cinnamon and hints of graham
crackers on the nose. Ripe red berry flavors are balanced by light vanilla oak notes
that transition into a deep finish of dark berry fruit.
2014 was another wonderful wine-growing season in Napa Valley, a true classic.
A wet February gave way to a characteristically dry spring. Except for slight heat
spikes in June and then again in July, the weather remained consistent throughout the
growing season. The accumulation of heat during the summer led to a slightly early
harvest. The sunny weather through to October allowed the grapes still to develop
more phenolic and flavor maturities with sugar levels remaining steady. The 2014
vintage, repeated many of the blessings that came in the 2012 and 2013 vintages
with the deeply colored and velvety grape skins, brown seeds, fully ripened grape
tannins, and a wonderful natural balance of brix and acidity. Aged 26 Months in 50%
new French Oak Barrels.
