Food Pairing Notes
The wine’s fruit and herbal aromas and soft tannins pair beautifully with richly flavored dishes like grilled pork chops, mushroom risotto and stuffed bell peppers.
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.
