Winemaker's Notes

In the 15th century, the Kings and Queens in a deck of cards depicted famous royals. The Jacks were noted protectors of their respective realms. Ogier the Dane (Spades) served Charlemagne. La Hire (Hearts) served Charles VII of France. Hector (Diamonds) defended the city of Troy under his father, King Priam. And the peerless Lancelot (Clubs) was Camelot's most noble knight. Today, these valets, as they were originally called, do battle on green felt, defending and seizing fortunes large and small. We pay tribute to these champions with our Soldiers of Fortune Shiraz.

This shiraz has aromas of black pepper, blueberry, star-anise, spicy, violets, and camphor.

It has a refined, juicy mid-palate, chewy yet viscous tannins, and a soft, long finish.

The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...
