Aromas of dark roasted vanilla bean, cedar box, black currant, and black olive with savory hints of rosemary.
Full bodied palate of rich dark coco powder, soy, sweet dark cherry and boysenberry juice. Lush tannins leading to a finish or refreshing mountain tannins and brown spice.
2016 was another in a string of excellent
vintages for Napa winemaking. Generous winter rains
brought much-needed rainfall to saturate the root zones
and replenish reservoirs. Moderate temperatures and bright sunshine enabled the vines to thrive throughout the spring and summer, creating a balanced, optimal growing pace. Warm days and cool nights during harvest season allowed ripening to progress at an even pace, resulting in wines that display complex fruit flavors and balanced acidity.
