Winemaker Notes

Rich, yet fresh and bright, this wine is incredibly enchanting. The nose features intense aromas of dark brambly fruit and layers of cinnamon, violet and vanilla. Balanced and supple on the palate, the finish is mouth-wateringly smooth.

Winery Chef Chris Kennedy enjoys Dragon‘s Tooth with slow cooked peppers and tomatoes for the deep richness that complements this wine perfectly. He suggests pairing with leaner cuts of beef like flank or skirt steak.

Blend: 54% Malbec, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Petit Verdot, 5% Merlot

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JS 92
James Suckling

Rich, malbec-based red with lots of crushed-berry and chocolate aromas and flavors. Full body, chewy tannins and a flavorful finish. A big wine with verve! A blend of 54% malbec, 25% cabernet sauvignon, 16% petit verdot and 5% merlot. Drink or hold.

D 91
Decanter

 Damson and sloe aromas over a palate of almost brandied ripe fruits with lovely skin tannins.

WE 90
Wine Enthusiast

This combines 54% Malbec with 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Petit Verdot and 5% Merlot for a forceful red of powerful concentration. Sweet oak and burly black fruit combine around a spicy, meaty midpalate, with firm tannins extending on the finish.

Napa Valley

Red Wine

View all products

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.
