1999 was a glorious vintage in the Napa Valley, where the vines held off ripening until the splendid Indian summer of October, when the day length is short and the promise long. This single vineyard offering displays in spades the silky mouthfeel and spicy red currant character inherent in our Carneros fruit. After a lengthy elevage in our cool, naturally climatized, underground caves, this cuvee was blended and bottled without filtration. Its elegant balance and fine tannin texture guarantee long cellaring and many years of pleasurable drinking. Enjoy.
