If a system is in a steady state, then the recently observed behavior of the system will continue into the future. Steady State pays homage to growing up in the Napa Valley and learning from its traditions. Also, being ready to disrupt them.
Striking in appearance, with its dark ruby color, the 2015 Steady State is immediately seductive. Very focused macerated black cherry, graphite, vanilla and forest floor aromas balance each other nicely. While the tannins have heft, they are also mouth-coating, sweet, round and quite elegant, giving way to flavors of ripe blackberry, balsam, a bit of camphor and espresso bean throughout the lingering finish.
2015 Steady State, while light on its feet, has staying power. It is a luxurious wine that, while superbly enjoyable now, will continue to age gracefully for at least 6-10 years.
