Winemaker's Notes

"The 2001 HL has the opulence of the 1997 and structure of the 1999. This vintage will be forward, fleshy and rich, but still nicely structured underneath with good tannins and acid – lots of pretty fruit with great structure, remarkable texture and color saturation. The fruit characteristics typical of the vineyard are black spices, blueberry, licorice, and deep black berries. This remarkable vintage achieves the ultimate vineyard expression and terroir components. Wines from this vineyard never reflect any drying, inky, or tannic fruit.

"Grapes from the H Block add concentrated black fruit flavors, tasting almost licoricy and dense on the back of the tongue when the wine is young, becoming black current with sweet black fruit flavors as the wine matures. Fruit from J Block gives the wine a perfumed character. We sweetened the wine up a bit by using another Nadalie oak barrel to the traditional tight grain Taransaud barrels." – Winemaker Mike Trujillo

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

Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity. Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...
