The Vintage

The 2014 vintage was rather exciting. We feel very fortunate to have brought in such fantastic grapes in a year that was marked by severe drought and a significant earthquake here in Napa just as harvest began. The weather throughout the growing season was absolutely perfect, with our classic warm days and cool nights. We brought in grapes from each block as they reached ideal ripeness and have produced wines of truly exceptional quality.

The Wine

“F·H·B” is code for Family Hold Back—a special designation for some of our favorite lots. The aroma on this unique Merlot includes notes of dark plum and a rich smokiness. On the palate, silky tannins lead into a savory sage finish.

Food Affinities

Great with prime rib and lighter gamey dishes such as duck and quail. Side dishes should include mushrooms or mushroom based sauces.
