Our estate Black Glass Vineyard Zinfandel takes its name from the obsidian that surfaces in the vineyard after each rain. Brilliant amethyst in color with a complex nose offering an array of fruit and spice aromas, this inviting wine is lively and vibrant. Our Black Glass Zinfandel is as playful as it is complex.
As the only Aglianico produced in the Napa Valley, this wine has a captivating nose that offers notes of blueberry, huckleberry, rhubarb, baked fruit and exotic spices such as nutmeg and mace. It is tightly knit with notes of dark chocolate and brambly dark red fruit. The mouthcoating tannins lead to a long, sanguine finish.
With an intense ruby / garnet hue, this wine entices with satisfying aromas of blackberry, boysenberry, blueberry and mocha with hints of lavender. Notes of toasted oak, such as vanilla and spice, add depth to the wine and gently support the fruit character.
Beautifully clear, dark garnet in color. Hints of rose petal and black cherry on the nose, reminiscent of a Black Forest cake. On the palate, it is like a fine dark chocolate melting on the tongue, or perhaps a ripe strawberry dipped in excellent chocolate. The wine is dense and complex, foretelling a long future of ever increasing dimensions.
The restrained, elegant nose offers hints of rose petal, violet and cocoa. The wine is juicy and expansive on the palate, with a lovely mix of fruit and spicy notes. Flavors of dark berries give way to the signature tart cherry note of Sangiovese, as well as chocolate ganache.
GOLD - 2019 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition
A Super-Tuscan style red wine, it has a full spectrum of red, blue and blackberry aromas with hints of cocoa, rhubarb and Rainier cherry on the palate.
2006 marks the seventh release of our estate blend called “Phenomenon”. The blending of Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese, Merlot and Syrah is an unusual “phenomenon” in Napa Valley, although these varietals often are the basis for the finest blended Super-Tuscan wines in Italy

This wine displays a rich garnet hue and beautiful, compelling aromas. Notes of black fruits such as blackberry, cassis and black plums are intermixed with hints of cedar, vanilla, and black tea. This Cabernet Sauvignon is irresistible now but will reward cellaring for a decade or more.
