    Winemaker Notes

    Whereas most red blends are created from separate lots of wine and blended prior to bottling, the fruit for this blend was carefully selected, co-fermented and barrel aged as a single lot to create awine with greater depth and integration. After an extended maceration period the wine was aged in a combination of new and seasoned French oak barrels for 18 months.

    Deep scarlet in color, with a slight purplish-black core. Intense aromas of dark berry, bing cherry and dried cranberry, layered with accents of smoky bacon, black pepper and sweet tobacco. The palate is fleshy and rich with dense, smooth flavors of raspberry chocolate torte, dark fruit, licorice and a savory seared meat character. Bold structure, balanced acidity and firm tannins give the wine tremendous depth, intensity and length now, with the potential to age gracefully.

    Predominant Varieties:
    Petite Sirah (Durif): Structure, inky color and chocolate.
    Zinfandel: Lively acidity, dark red fruit.
    Petit Verdot: Firm tannin, violet and anise notes.
    Syrah: Bacon, black pepper.

    Named for the upper Napa Valley land grant, "Rancho Carne Humana", the bold and nuanced character of this wine is a worthy expression of the rich history and diverse soils of the land from where it is sourced. The land grant was issued to Edwin Bale in 1841 and it encompassed the northern Calistoga boundary to the southern edge of St. Helena Township. Today, the entire valley floor and foothills on either side are home to a high concentration of old vine reds – from Zinfandel and Petit Syrah, to one-of-a-kind field blends and heritage varietals like Charbono. The gravelly loam soils and warm Napa Valley climate are perfect for producing an opulent, richly textured red wine.

    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.
