2009 Proprietary Red Wine Napa Valley

Tart cherry and red raspberry, spiced with nutmeg.

Grapes sourced from three different vineyards: Cabernet Sauvignon from the Peter Newton Vineyard on Spring Mountain, Syrah from our own Los Olivos Vineyard in Jamieson Canyon, and Merlot from the Vidal Vineyard in Napa.

Tasting Notes

Blueberry, huckleberry, and black plum, with hints of campfire and braised meat; solid structure with a touch of acidity, making it ideal for drinking alone or pairing with food; robust flavor with smooth, ripe, long-lasting tannins.

Winemaker's Notes

Clusters de-stemmed and berries moved through a double-sorting system, removing jacks and leaving only individual, whole berries that are barrel fermented in French oak.
