The cool climate Syrah’s bright fruit and white pepper blends seamlessly with the Napa Cabernet Sauvignon’s plum, berry, and blackberry notes. The wines soft mouth-feel and smokiness is enhanced by subtle oak.
Wine Maker Notes
This wine is a blend of two reserve vineyards; 52% Napa Cabernet Sauvignon and 48% Edna Valley Syrah. The wines were fermented and aged separately, then aged in small American oak barrels for 13 months. Blending occurred before bottling to ensure that both varietals were appropriately expressed.
Will age and gain complexity for 6 to 8 years if stored properly at 55º F - 60º F.
