About This Wine

Color: bright ruby with hints of mashed strawberries on the rim

On the nose: explosion of clay, forest floor, chocolate and pepper lingering on strawberries, licorice, tulips and white truffle

On the palate: velvety entrance with touches of cherry, persimmons, star fruit and cherry

Wine Profile

Blend: 100% Pinot Noir

Winemaker Notes:

" Overall 2013 was a typical Napa vintage. We had limited rain and a quite a bit of heat. This forced us to be creative in protecting the fruit from heat and sun exposure through canopy management and irrigation.The red wines in 2013 are ripe and big. Because it was a hot year in Napa, we reached the sugar ripeness quickly but had to wait a little for the tannins to ripen. Because the rain never came, we were able to pick when we wanted. This gave us wines with a very concentrated profile on both aromas and tannins."
