Wine Profile
Winemaker Notes
The 2014 Napa Valley wine grape harvest was year of exceptional quality. The winter was one of the driest on record in Napa Valley, with approximately half of the normal rainfall. However, rains in late February and early March provided water to the vines just as they were beginning bud break. The spring was warm and berry sizes were smaller and with more concentrated flavors, and the overall quality, depth of flavor and excellent balance and maturity in the grapes bodes well for the vintage. - Brooks Painter, Director of Winemaking
Food Pairing Notes
Excellent companion to most meat based dishes, especially roast lamb and duck. Also pairs well with flavorful cheeses such as brie, sharp cheddar, and aged Gouda.
