Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
This garnet-hued wine exudes a bountiful bouquet of juicy cranberry and faint spearmint aromas that swirl amongst notes of rosewater, dried violet and subtle sage. The palate is lush and abundant, teeming with flavors of red plum and succulent currant that give way to hints of cherry cola, fresh raspberry and toasted vanilla, converging into a complex texture that is balanced by fresh acidity and round tannins.
Vineyard Notes
Fruit was harvested from select estate vineyards in a handful of renowned appellations. With their distinct terroirs, each of these appellations constitutes a singular thread that the winemaker has woven together to craft a finished wine that is far more than the sum of its parts.
Production Notes
2013 was an ideal seaon in Napa Valley, with dry conditions and a long, sunny summer, allowing even ripening and yielding exquisite, balanced fruit. The fruit for this wine was harvested at an optimal level of ripeness in early October. Fermentation took place at a high temperature to ensure that maximum extraction was achieved before the wine was racked to 38% new French oak barrels. The wine was aged in barrel for a total of 18 months before bottling.
Food Pairing Notes
Subtle yet complex, this wine would make an excellent partner for a rich, marbled steak with roasted new potatoes and a wedge salad. Additionally, this wine would pair excellently with a selection of charcuterie and a hard Italian cheese, such as Pecorino Gran Reserva.
