Familiar scent of cracked black pepper from Napa County's highest vineyard combine with rich oak and concentrated blackberry fruit as equal partners.



Growing Conditions

It was a very scary start to the 2014 season due to the lack of rain fall at the end of the year . Harvest fully started late August just after the earthquake and just like the earthquake the grapes came, fast and furious. With the last weeks of September and begining of October, combined with an Indian summer bringing temperatures in the high 90s helped push the maturity of the grape varieties giving us another run for our money. 2014 delivered exceptional high quality fruit.
