Nose

Offers enticing aromas of fresh raspberry, strawberry and brandied cherries.

Palate

Flavors of raspberry compote, Santa Rosa plum and sweet vanilla are complemented by a touch of allspice and coffee notes on the finish. This is a nicely balanced wine with a broad entry, sweet tannins and a blance of depth and density that lead to a long, satisfying finish.

Growing Conditions

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.
