Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Deeper in color and richer in flavor than our Napa Valley Sangiovese, this medium to full-bodied single vineyard red wine leads with lush aromas of dark cherry and baking spice, with juicy dark fruits, red plum, and cassis balanced by a bright acidity which makes this classic Italian variety such an excellent food-friendly wine.
Vineyard Notes
Located on the Silverado Trail just south of the town of Yountville, the Sangiovese fruit from this vineyard tends to exhibit wild berry and spice aromas classic to its variety, yet the intensity and texture of the wine more closely resembles a fine Cabernet Sauvignon.
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.
Food Pairing Notes
Pair with heartier Italian cuisine, such as Florentine steak or Portabello mushroom risotto.
