Winemaker’s Notes: Produced in the Old World style to create a wine place. Where the wine tells you its story of place, variety and vintage. The way Napa Cabernet was made back in the 50’s and 60’s.
Vintage Notes: Normal rain, later bud break. No frost. Hot summer, but no real heat spikes during ripening. Harvested 10 days later than 2017 with larger than average crop size.
Currents, cherry, toasty, extractive, black pepper all come together with light menthol and good balanced acidity. Varietal with a rich full center.
