full-bodied, crisp and complex
90% aged 5 months in French oak
Our Vin de Porche reveals delicate aromas of fresh strawberry, raspberry, and peach with hints of rose petals. Bright acidity on the palate drives full, welldefined flavors of ripe raspberry, white peach, and melon. This is a balanced wine, with a vibrant finish of strawberry, red cherry, and a touch of minerality. It is a porch sipper for the summer.
Grown in the cool Carneros conditions that maintain excellent balance between fruit characters and acidity in grapes. We ferment and age this wine in French oak barrels, and leave it on the yeast lees for months to enhance texture and complexity. Floral aromas mingle with fresh citrus, orange blossom, and white peach characters, and the palate is weighty yet balanced, with a mouth-coating texture and a clean, mineral finish.
This estate single-vineyard wine is grown in the cooler southern region of Napa Valley, Los Carneros. We harvest these grapes at night when the acidity and fruit are in perfect balance. Aging in French oak, with stirring of the yeast lees, adds extraordinary richness and complexity.
