Winemaker Notes

The nose, again, is black cherry coupled with scents of smoke and a gentle weediness that is typical of this vineyard. The wine is elegant in its style, well structured with moderate acidity, to balance the tannins of ripeness. The wine always shows well, whether it's in the barrel or freshly bottled. Drink it now or drink it later.

Judd's Hill, California
We have made wine in The Napa Valley since the 1970s, and continue to produce signature wines that are fruit-driven and concentrated while remaining well-balanced and food-friendly. Taking an intimate and personal approach to our winemaking, we limit our annual production to less than 3,000 cases.

In addition to our Judd’s Hill wines, we have produced custom wine in small lots since 1991 for aspiring vintners under our Custom MicroCrush program. All of our Judd’s Hill and MicroCrush wines are made in our certified Napa Valley Green Winery designed to minimize our impact on the land. The use of environmentally efficient drainage, solar lighting, and an aggressive recycling and composting program are a few ways that our winery uses smart design to make a difference.

Napa Valley

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.
