81% Zinfandel, 19% Merlot
Vibrantly colored, with a soft, round entry and a long, lingering finish. Beautifully lifted aromas of ripe wild strawberries and citrus flowers, with subtle minerality and a luxurious hint of crème fraîche. The flavors are filled with juicy wild berry notes and crisp citrus zest, all supported by fresh, focused acidity.
The 2013 harvest was early, even and excellent, with all of our Estate fruit in the winery by October 10th. A warm dry spring brought an early bud break and created ideal conditions for flowering and fruit set. In the weeks after Labor Day, a moderate heat event followed by a period of perfect weather created a dream scenario for end-of-season ripening. Rain was not a factor, and for the second vintage in a row, the quality of the grapes was exceptional throughout Napa Valley.
