This wine comes from Somerston Estates, the same location we get our Sauvignon Blanc. Somerston is located 10 miles east of the Silverado Trail in the eastern hills of Napa Valley. The vineyard site is home to cool nights, warm days and late morning fog which ensure the grapes ripen slowly and evenly develop fruit forward flavors with plenty of tannin and structure.
We originally made this wine to add into our Napa Valley Cabernet and serve as a perfect blender, but because we only added a touch we had enough left to bottle up to share with only our biggest fans.
36 months barrel aged. 50% New French Oak.
