Winemaker's Notes:

The nose shows intense characters of pear, spice and almonds with underlying white peach notes. The palate is long and powerful displaying dried pear, toasty, creamy custard tart and nuances of cashew with lingering stone fruit and a fresh, clean acid finish.

About Stickybeak:

Some people might say we’re busybodies or nosey neighbors although we prefer the Australian term ‘stickybeak’. And being Napa based wine industry folk, it’s hard not to be intrigued about the stunning vineyards and regions that surround us. In fact, as inquisitive vintners it seemed only natural that we’d have a bit of a stickybeak in our own backyard to see what we could find.

With a winemaking mate of ours, Wayne Donaldson (a veteran of 30 vintages at well known estates such as Brokenwood in Australia and Domaine Chandon in Napa), and a great roster of growers, we’ve been able to produce wines that not only sing stridently of their origins but also deliver a wallop in the flavor department – not meaning heavy and overdone, but simply long, lingering and wonderfully focused. Wines that invite another charge.
