The winter of 2016-2017 broke the drought for most of California. Napa Valley received much-needed rainfall throughout the season,
totaling almost 60 inches of rain. The vines responded with full, healthy canopies for the long growing season. The weather was
warm and sunny all season, which allowed the fruit to ripen at a slow and steady pace.
Food Pairing Notes
Fine tannins and a velvety mouthfeel make this wine an ideal accompaniment to capellini with tomatoes and basil or a crisp calamari with garlic lime sauce.
BLEND: 94% Merlot, 6% Malbec
Select lots were sourced from diverse Napa Valley sub-appellations to create a medley of nuanced flavors, aromas and varietal characteristics.
