Vintage Notes:

2010 was a very cool vintage with high levels of acidity which protect fragile aromas and give a great backbone to the wine. The growing season allowed the aromatics to be a little less ripe and more subtle and fresh because at no time was the grape burned by heat. The consequences are a well balanced wine with lower alcohol levels but also include wonderful extraction of great Napa Valley terroir.
