VINTAGE

The 2015 growing season started early in Napa Valley. As California entered its fourth year of drought, we were fortunate to receive spring rains sufficient to fill our reservoir and saturate the soil. Consistent sun and warmth throughout the growing season led to an early crop of high-quality grapes.  

WINEMAKING
Grapes for this wine come from a neighboring vineyard owned by the Collins family. These gnarly vines, planted on a cobbly swale in 1923 were hand-picked and gently destemmed without crushing, and then fermented in open-top fermenters for three weeks, receiving two or three punch-downs per day. It then aged in French oak for 16 months.

TASTING NOTES
Big, briary nose displaying blackberry, black raspberry and baked cherry, with a hint of caramel. Bold and spicy on the palate, the wine offers juicy notes of black fruits such as cherry and plum, and hints of herbs such as thyme and rosemary. The soft tannins beautifully support this delicious wine, which has good acidity and a long finish. 

PAIRINGS
This wine will pair beautifully with prosciutto and melon, cracked Dungeness crab, grilled halibut, or a pasta primavera with peas, fava beans and asparagus.

- Matt Reid, Winemaker
