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 in the wines coming form the year. Even with drought concerns the weather was near perfect and we were fortunate to have a decent size crop. Our various dources from traditional Bordeaux varieties specifically came in at an even pace and with well developed fruit character and bright acidity.

Vineyard Details

We source Merlot from Oakville & Rutherford which lend to the lush fruit components. The Cabernet Sauvignon for this blend from St. Helena, Oakville, Rutherford & Pope Valley. These regions offer dark fruit and well integrated tannin development. . Our primary sources for Cab Franc and Petit Verdot came from the Pope Valley region of Napa that tends to allow for longer hang time. Our Petite Verdot vineyards tend to be our last fruit brought in, allowing for very complex character and tannin development. The Malbec from Yountville adds mid-palate weight and juiciness.
