Winemaker Notes
“Fresh pitted fruit aromas of dark cherry and plum are supported underneath by structural notes of subtle cocoa, cardamom and clove. The rounded tannins and integrated oak shine in a lush mid-palate mouthfeel that transitions to a smooth lingering finish. The classic freshness and complexity amply demonstrate the promise of this beautiful Rutherford Estate site.” — Ashley Heisey
Vineyard Notes
2014 was one of the warmest and driest vintages on record, Napa Valley certainly experienced the effects of the drought. There was no frost during bud break which contributed to a strong, early set in the vineyard. Warm days and no rain allowed us to harvest a beautiful crop in early weeks of August.
