Winemaker Notes
A very dry, warm vintage, 2013's abnormally cool nights (a must for great vintages) allowed for development of the 3rd release of this Napa Red Blend. The color is deep purple to the rim and is followed by aromas of tapenade, dark raspberry and hints of baking spice. The touch of Malbec resulted in delicate notes of raspberry and strawberry mingle with dark sour cherry, hoisin sauce and earthy blackberry bramble which balances beautifully with the dark fruit of the cabernet sauvignon.  The tail end is balanced and structured which allows the wine to flow effortlessly into a finish that has prominent but slight tannins that will need a few years to integrate further.
