A lovely bouquet of ripe strawberries.
The flavors of black cherry and blackberry are accentuated by creme brulee on the finish.
This, like all of our wines, is 100% estate grown, and it comes from a single Napa vineyard. The wine is custom crushed at Judd's Hill on the Silverado Trail north of Napa, where we benefit from the experience of Kenn Vigoda's 25+ years of making outstanding Napa wines.
After being hand-picked, the wine is cold soaked on skins and gently pressed.
Aged in 50% new French oak from Marsannay and Francois Freres for eleven months.
The wine has a jewel-like hue.
It is gentle enough to pair happily with salmon but has enough structure and body to complement chicken, pork or even lamb.
