"Though sweet, this is a zesty and refreshing bottling. Aromas of orange blossom, melon and lemon verbena entice the nose, while the palate shows complex flavors of zesty citrus, river stone and young coconut." — Matt Kettmann

Winemaker Notes
Harvest kicked off in early August, with the typical gap between the white and red varietal maturation being almost nonexistent. This frenzied tempo continued until the rains provided our team a much-needed break. Following the rain, grapes left to hang through October enjoyed mild weather days that allowed us to wait for perfect ripeness. Our white wines from this harvest have shown perfect acidity and freshness with remarkable flavors and textures. Red wines are displaying excellent structure with deep red colors, luxurious tannins, and exquisite fruit- forward aromatics. We believe the unique weather events that defined the vintage will showcase the full range of flavors that Napa Valley wines are so well known for from crisp and vibrant to dense and powerful.
Food Pairing Notes
An excellent accompaniment to crab cakes, sushi, or spinach and apple salad with candied walnuts and honeymustard vinaigrette
Other Notes
Il Raggio del Sole" translates to "The Ray of The Sun.

Delight fruity and floral notes! I brought 6 bottles for my friend’s wedding and everyone loved it. Some says it was too sweet but we didn’t have enough desserts anyway so it was great.
