Inspired by the opulent right bank blends of Bordeaux, this wine is built from fine-grained Merlots and the elegant refines of Cabernet. Dense aromas of persimmon, pomegranate, clove, nutmeg, lotus flower and allspice evolve in multiple layers. A mouth divided between roses and oolong tea, builds generously into a rich seas of Sabra, dusty gravel, and sweet black tea. Plush and generous, this wine truly defines elegance.

Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
Fruit was sourced from our Twin Peaks Ranch on the Yountville Cross Road and a few of our valued growers within the Napa Valley. Yields are maintained at sparse levels, ranging from 2 to 3.5 tons per acre. The wine is composed of small batches from a variety of blocks, representing the diverse range of carefully selected rootstocks and clones.
Production Notes
Grapes were picked in the darkness of the early morning hours, and immediately subjected to rigorous selection by our three-tiered sorting and refinement process. The whole berries were gently delivered to tank by our crane system, minimizing disruption of berry integrity. Cold soaks lasted approximately five days, and fermentations were managed via a combination of delestage, pumpovers, and punchdowns. Extended maceration ranging from three to four weeks fine-tuned our tannin profiles, allowing us to perfect mouth feel and wine complexity. The wine was aged in 75% new French oak and 25% neutral oak for eighteen months.
