Viticulture

Early summer 2016 was temperate, with fewer days of triple-digit temperatures than Napa Valley has come to expect. August delivered heat per the usual, and the vintage continued to track in the 10-14 days early range. September dawned with a classic Indian Summer weather pattern - lovely warm days with dry breezes and cool nights - the epitome of perfection for grapes finishing their journey towards ripeness. Overall the vintage was characterized by excellent flavors and balance, in a crop that was smaller and earlier than usual.

Tasting Note

Enticing aromas of rose water, orange peel, cranberry, and mission fig, framed with a clean and steely minerality. On the palate, the wine is juicy and weighty with smooth tannins wrapped around flavors of ripe strawberry, milk chocolate, and cinnamon.
