Winemaker Notes

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WE 91
Wine Enthusiast
This is a Merlot-dominant blend, with 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Cabernet Franc blended in. It offers cooler-climate elements of dried herb, cedar and currant, with the tannins sleek and polished. The finish flirts with a taste of coconut. Drink now through 2021
CG 91
Connoisseurs' Guide
55% Merlot; 30% Cabernet Sauvignon; 15% Cabernet Franc. It is no knock against this wine that its central character is a bit oriented to the ripe plum side of things and that its structure is that much more blunt in feel than its mate above. This wine will also age well, and, in the near term, the differences between the two are less today than they seem likely to become over time. Give this one four to six years.
JS 91
James Suckling
So much dried flower, walnut and plum aromas with mineral undertones. Full body, silky tannins and a flavorful finish. A sweet tobacco and light powder chocolate undertone.
WS 90
Wine Spectator
Well-structured but tightly wound, with aromas of red currant and bittersweet chocolate and flavors of cherry, olive and black tea. Finishes with firm tannins. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2018 through 2022. 6,000 cases made.

Undoubtedly proving its merit over and over, Napa Valley is a now a leading force in the world of prestigious red wine regions. Though Cabernet Sauvignon dominates Napa Valley, other red varieties certainly thrive here. Important but often overlooked include Merlot and other Bordeaux varieties well-regarded on their own as well as for their blending capacities. Very old vine Zinfandel represents an important historical stronghold for the region and Pinot noir is produced in the cooler southern parts, close to the San Pablo Bay.

Perfectly situated running north to south, the valley acts as a corridor, pulling cool, moist air up from the San Pablo Bay in the evenings during the hot days of the growing season, which leads to even and slow grape ripening. Furthermore the valley claims over 100 soil variations including layers of volcanic, gravel, sand and silt—a combination excellent for world-class red wine production.
