This dark and voluptuous wine displays a beautifully complex nose of red and black currants, slate, anise and sweet tobacco leaf, with hints of quince and black cherry. The palate is lush and layered, unfurling in waves of lush fruit, dark chocolate, cinnamon and black tea that culminate in a remarkably long, complex finish.
2019 brought another exceptional vintage to Napa Valley, resulting in wines with alluring polish and poise! The season began with a wet winter followed by a mild spring. While this led to a slightly later-than-normal start to the season, ideal summer weather with no significant heat spikes ensured ideal flavor development, yielding complex and vibrant whites, and refined reds with elegant tannins, enticing aromatics and beautiful fruit flavors.
