2017 Red Blend
, Napa Valley
Oak Knoll District

95 Points - Bonfort's Wine & Spirits Journal
92 Points - Christopher Sawyer

Dark crimson hue, and gracious from the moment it hits the glass.  With lofty aromas of ripe dark fruits, wild berries, roasted fig, English Toffee, savory spice, and roasted walnut.
Deep flavors of dark cherry, ripe plum, black raspberry and pomegranate on the palate, layered with notes of wild sage, clove, nutmeg, and bittersweet chocolate.  Robust and mouth-filling, with spicy nuances, smooth tannins, firm structure, and a long lingering finish.  Elegant and complex.  Perfectly aged.
An outstanding wine! 

Proprietary Blend (Bordeaux varietal) from grapes grown in the Oak Knoll District of Napa Valley.  Aged 28 months in French Oak barrels.

Approachable now, and has plenty of depth, structure, and complexity to lay down for another 5-8 years.

Less than a hundred cases EVER MADE and we have just enough to share with you today.  While it lasts!

Pairings include Bone-in pork chop, duck confit, earthy cheese, slow-roasted prime rib, chocolate truffle, even a fine cigar by the fireplace.

Winemaking

Vintage
The 2017 year began with abundant rainfall, followed by a mild Spring resulting in extended flowering with little shatter. The summer warmed up nicely, allowing the fruit to mature at an even rate and make optimum conditions for flavor development. A Labor Day weekend kicked harvest into high gear, picking in mid-September and the first week in October.
