A testament to great Napa Valley Petit Verdot, this wine is sourced from three acclaimed winegrowing sites: the legendary Three Palms Vineyard, Monitor Ledge and Cork Tree Vineyards. Each site contributes unique characteristics to create a wine with beautiful color, concentrated aromas of blackberry and eucalyptus and a juicy mouth feel.

Winemaker Notes
With its inky color and its dazzling aromas of blackberry, espresso, anise, cinnamon and fresh-cracked walnuts, this is a classically beautiful expression of Petit Verdot. The mouthfeel is both firm and inviting, with a rich, fleshy mid-palate that carries flavors of boysenberry, currant, cocoa and Chinese five-spice to a luxurious finish, punctuated with hints of black licorice and rose petal.
2012 offered near-perfect growing conditions. Though budbreak was late due to heavy spring rains, warm weather during bloom allowed the vines to set a large crop. Increased yields were the result of more berries, not larger berries. This translated into even higher quality in the winery, as the skin-to-juice ratio remained ideal. Slightly cooler-than-average post-veraison weather, and a lack of any heat events allowed for greatly extended hang time. Harvest was 2-3 weeks later than average, and the grapes arrived at the winery in pristine condition.
