The spring was warm and dry, getting the vines off to an early start. The weather stayed warm throughout the summer but was free of damaging heat spells. September brought a classic Napa Valley autumn with warm days and very cool nights. With the consistent warmth, the harvest began about two weeks early and we had a very busy September. The beautiful growing season resulted in truly exceptional wines—full of ripe flavors, developed in the sunshine, and balanced by natural acidity from the cool nights.The Wine
This wine opens with notes of plum and boysenberry. The bright palate is supported by well-integrated tannins and a natural tartness resulting from our estate vineyard’s location in the relatively cool Oak Knoll District of the Napa Valley.Food Affinities
Our Malbec pairs perfectly with dark meat turkey, roasted pork and leaner red meats. The wine shines with pepper, sage, creamy mushroom sauces and melted cheese.
