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
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.
