A blend of 57% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Merlot, and the rest Syrah, Cabernet Franc, and Petit Verdot. Beautiful aromas of smoky forest floor, plums, red and black currants, and black rasberries are followed by a wine displaying supple tannins, broad, savory fruit flavors, full body, and a silky texture. This harmonious, luscious 2006 can be drunk now and over the next 10/15 years. Not a surprise it took Double Gold. Will sell out quickly!
Sourced from outstanding vineyards in both the Napa Valley and the Los Carneros AVA’s. This Chardonnay shows outstanding character. Hints of tangerine, grilled pineapple, and peach are interwoven with rich vanilla, oak sap, and stony notes. This wines lively acidity will wake your taste buds up with your first sip and keep them engaged until the last. On the palate, yeast, lemon zest and hints of oak are expressed in beautiful harmony. Destined to be yet another major hit in the Valley. A must pair with any seafood dinner!
After a wonder 2007 vintage from the Corotto Vineyard the 2008 is no disappointment. The same wonderful vineyard characters of raspberries, cherries and pomegranate are still dominate with supple hints of spices and earth tones to complete the package. The wines texture is more gentle in nature and forms a classic Pinot profile on palate with a lively acid and tannin balance, with a long nice finish to round it out. Another home run for sure!!
