Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Rich aromas of black cherry, blackberry and dried sage lead to notes of dark fruits with plush tannins, balanced acidity, and hints of smoky caramel from aging in French oak barrels.
Vineyard Notes
Los Carneros is the southernmost AVA in the Napa Valley, and is the only Napa County AVA that overlaps into Sonoma County. Its close proximity to the San Pablo Bay allows for much cooler climates compared to the rest of the valley, making it a perfect growing location for Burgundian varietals such as Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
Winemaker Notes
Following the very small 2015 harvest, it was heartening to see the vines recover and bounce back to produce not only extremely high quality fruit but also some bounty in 2016! Harvest was earlier than we expected, and we observed optimum flavor and phenolic development progress as we harvested. Across the board, the flavors and acids were exceptional, and a delicious balance evolved as the harvest proceeded. Acids are firm and pH is slightly lower, so the wines should be well-structured with very good aging potential. This is an exciting vintage with a lot to like! —Brooks Painter, Director of Winemaking
Food Pairing Notes
Pair this versatile wine with grilled pork chops, stuffed mushrooms with wild rice, or grilled summer vegetables.
