Youthful, spirited and dynamic, the 2015 Romance presents as the juvenile sibling to Seduction and exhibits a similar, albeit more playful, primary and understandable, aroma and flavor profile, complete with an abundance of red and black fruits layered with aromatic herbs, spice and a bit livelier and lasting tannic grip.

Growing Conditions

The 2015 growing season in Napa Valley started out with unseasonably warm temperatures in the late winter and early spring. This resulted in an early bud break and bloom… The harvest was one of the earliest on record in Napa Valley, beginning on July 22 with the picking of grapes for sparkling wine, and concluding for most all vintners and growers in the valley by mid-October. While ongoing drought was of great concern to farmers around California, Napa Valley received 75% of normal rainfall for the water.
