Napa Valley Red Wine

Allocated & Winery Only ~ Available for Purchase

The 2012 Napa Valley Red Wine was the first of our red wines from the vintage to be bottled (in March 2014) and now released (6 months later).

The earthy, loam-soil aromas are most apparent in the glass as they dust over a forest floor bramble of fruit and flowers that is accentuated with hints of mint and herbal Cabernet Sauvignon freshness. The palate remains dark with a core of kirsch flavors but mirrors the dustiness on the nose by leaving a bittersweet chocolate texture on the finish. The wine's overall presence on the palate is of medium weight and will be best served at cellar temperature.
