Vintage Notes
In spite of the drought and the South Napa earthquake, we consider the 2014 vintage in Napa Valley a recent favorite vintage of high quality with depth of flavor and excellent character. Even with drought concerns the weather was near perfect and we were fortunate to have a decent size crop. Mountain fruit specifically came in at an even pace and with well developed fruit character and bright acidity.

Vineyard Notes
Sourced from old vine plantings at Godward Vineyard in the Calistoga region as well as Julianna and Calla Lily vineyard in the Pope Valley region of Napa.

Tasting Notes
The aromatics suggest coffee bean, black fruits, smoked bacon, white flowers and vanilla bean. On the palate we discover black cherry, currant, chocolate covered espresso beans and spice rubbed meats. The wine coats the palate with tannin and acidity accented by fruit and spice notes. With some decanting, this wine evolves into an even more integrated tannin.
