Wine Profile

Production Notes
Blend Composition: 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Petit Verdot, 4% Zinfandel
Winemaker Notes
The exceptional 2018 growing season yielded a stunning expression of X², with bright, alluring aromas of blueberry, black cherry, dusty wild strawberry and violets leaping from the glass, followed by subtle hints of cassis, caramel, clove and dark chocolate. On the palate, this wine is weighty and polished, with rich, elegant tannins and vibrant underlying acidity framing the juicy red and dark berry flavors. The finish is lush and lingering, with expansive fruit and seamless notes of toasted oak, mocha and savory spice.
Production
In Napa Valley, a mild spring and summer, with no significant heat events, pushed the beginning of harvest back a full four weeks from our average start date. In addition to providing abundant hangtime, the temperate weather ensured that the fruit was able to preserve excellent natural acidity. Because the cool weather continued into autumn, we were able to assess and pick each block at ideal ripeness. One of the most noteworthy elements of the growing season was the fact that the grapes were able to develop beautiful, fully ripe flavors, at lower Brix. As a result, the wines are both elegant and complex, with excellent energy and acidity, and lovely varietal character.
