Vintage Notes
The 2015 vintage was marked by another year of drought in the Napa Valley. While quality was high, yields were low. Fortunately, that which we did harvest was endowed with depth of character, and concentrated flavors. We were able to pick at phenolic ripeness while maintaining moderate sugar levels, affording us the chance to craft wines with moderate alcohol, lively acidity and bright fruit flavors.

Vineyard Notes
Sourced from vineyards in the Pope Valley, a lesser known region of Napa Valley. Outstanding farming in these vineyards is the basis for the consistent quality that presents itself in this blend.

Tasting Notes
The nose suggests bright red fruit, cigar box, herbes de Provence and a mix of red and white flowers. On the palate the structure is bold with dark raspberry, black cherry and plum. Rich coffee and a touch of chocolate leading into a finish with structured tannin and weight.
