Vintage Notes
For the third year in a row, Napa Valley experienced an exceptional vintage and near drought conditions.  Though the drought continued to concern us throughout the growing season, between 11 and 17 inches of rain fell in the critical months of February and March, coming at the right time to provide the necessary water needed for a fairly smooth growing season.  The warm winter resulted in an early bud break. July’s relatively low temperatures were coupled with high humidity during the summer, heightening rot and mildew concerns.  The relatively cool summer slowed down sugar accumulation to achieve perfect ripeness at lower sugar levels. The growing season provided numerous challenges – our third consecutive drought year, the South Napa earthquake in August, and late season hail.  Our harvest started about two weeks early, the earliest since 2004, with vines yielding loose clusters of small, intensely flavored berries.  The resulting wines have deep color, rich fruit flavors and a wonderful, supple texture on the palate.

Tasting Notes
The striking, inky color leads into a voluptuous nose of baked plum, fig and dates.  A sip reveals more rich, dark fruit sprinkled with exotic baking spice.  Maraschino cherry and kirsch liqueur both come to mind, leading one to memories of winter holiday dinners.  The wine literally paints the glass, displaying a luxurious viscosity that follows through on the palate.  Delicious now, with cellaring it will evolve and grow into the seductive wine it promises to become.
