A blend of Sangiovese fruit from our own estate vineyard in the Diamond Mountain District along with fruit from Atlas Peak and Mount Veeder, with a touch of Napa Valley Merlot.
The 2014 Napa Valley wine grape harvest was year of exceptional quality. The winter was one of the
driest on record in Napa Valley, with approximately half of the normal rainfall. However, rains in late February and early March provided water to the vines just as they were beginning bud break. The spring was warm and berry sizes were smaller and with more concentrated flavors, and the overall quality, depth of flavor and excellent balance and maturity in the grapes bodes well for the vintage. — Brooks Painter, Director of Winemaking
