A full-bodied, wellbalanced
wine, our 2013 vintage opens with enticing blackberry
aromas followed by flavors of dark cherry and cassis. The wine
was purposely crafted to be enjoyable upon release.
The 2013 vintage in Napa Valley was one of the earliest
harvested vintages in years. A warm spring led to early bud
break and created the perfect environment for flowering and
fruit set. With warm days and cool nights, our team was able to
maintain ideal acid levels with optimum, bright fruit flavors.
We used Cabernet grapes from three unique appellations,
resulting in a fun and diverse wine to make. The blend is
comprised of fruit from the Napa Valley, Sonoma County, and
Lake County. Napa Valley is the backbone of the blend, with
its terroir providing the fullest expression of black fruits and
integrated tannins; Sonoma County’s fog influence produces
grapes that give the wine structure, balance and acidity; Lake
County’s growing season is short, making for red, jammy wines
that are easy to enjoy. Small amounts of Merlot and Petit
Verdot were added before bottling to provide depth &
structure to the final blend.
it with braised short ribs for the perfect meal.
