Vintage Notes:

The effects of this growing season brought a very elegant and feminine counterpart to this wine. 2016 was a near-perfect growing season giving Napa Valley another winner in a string of historic vintages.  Spring budbreak came early due to dry, warm soils from a drought winter. This produced a lower count and smaller clusters. The thinner grape population focused the vine’s energy into the smaller clusters resulting in very flavorful berries. Minimal heat spells and consistently cool nights across the summer months allowed the clusters to ripen slowly and evenly while protecting their vitally important natural acidity.
