TASTING NOTES
This full-bodied wine starts with fragrant aromas of ripe blackberries, potpourri, freshly turned earth, and Chambord. On the palate, we find mouth-coating flavors of blueberries, Santa Rosa plums, and baking spices with a pleasant grip of ripe tannins coupled with notes of toffee, rhubarb compote, fresh sage and cigar box on the long and pleasant finish. 

2016 VINTAGE NOTES
The near-perfect 2016 growing season started early and saw ideal weather conditions throughout and wrapped up as the valley's first significant fall rainstorm arrived on October 14th. Thanks to a relatively steady and mild July and August and then a series of warm days at the end of the growing season, our vineyards were able to progress to perfect ripeness. Wines from the 2016 vintage showcase classic Napa Valley qualities of fruit, acid, and tannin in perfect balance. Amazingly, this represents a streak of 5 consecutive vintages of excellent quality stretching back to 2012.
