Winemaker's Notes:

Intense aromas of rich, ripe boysenberry, chocolate and sweet vanilla, coupled with notes of toasty oak and sweet, dark, berry fruit. Concentrated flavors echo the complex aromas, while ripe cherry fruit floods the palate. This wine is plush and enveloping with splendid aging potential.
My Notes:

About Regusci Winery:

"Ghost Winery" is the name given to the few remaining early Napa Valley wineries that were in existence between 1860 and 1900. Very few of these Ghost Wineries remain as the vineyards of most Napa Valley wineries were decimated by the phylloxera infestation of the 1890's. The economic depression of that decade was the final blow for many others. As a result, most of these wineries were abandoned or forced into bankruptcy and then laid dormant through prohibition. Over the years that followed, many fell into disrepair and were dismantled or absorbed into newer, more modern facilities. One example of a fantastically preserved Ghost Winery is located on the Regusci Ranch - the T.L. Grigsby-Occidental Winery
