Our Napa Valley collection offers full expression of the diversity of this world-renowned region. We source these wines from more than 1,100 acres of estate vineyards as well as historic Napa Valley vineyards managed by our long-term winegrowing partners. Drawing on our rich legacy of more than 100 years of innovative winemaking, we select the precise methods that best honor each facet of our exceptional Napa Valley terroir.
The 2015 growing season’s very small grapes and clusters gave our 2015 Carneros Pinot Noir its highly saturated color and complex, darker-fruit expression. Aromas of ripe, black cherry and brambleberry reveal hints of sun-warmed rose, forest loam and a savory umami herbaceousness. High-toned notes of sweet baking spices, from French oak barrels, weave through the aromas and linger on the berry-imbued finish. Supple, fine-grained tannins structure the wine, while natural acidity gives it elegant balance and vibrancy, all backed by a classic Carneros earthiness.
Deep and intense, our 2015 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon reveals the superb concentration of the vintage. Opulent layers of blackberry, black cherry and juicy plum character unfold with complex nuances of violet and mocha. Ample, mature tannins provide firm structure and rich texture for the mouthfilling flavors. Nicely integrated hints of allspice, cinnamon, and caramel from toasted oak barrels lace the aromas and lingering finish. This big, generous Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is approachable and delicious now, yet promises cellar worthiness.”
