2016 Maestro Collection Ranch No. 1 Red Wine

The 2016 Maestro Collection Ranch No. 1 is a classic Bordeaux-style blend from our historic vineyard in Rutherford. Cabernet Sauvignon is the predominant varietal but Merlot (16%) and Petit Verdot (6%) round out the final blend. The Cabernet Sauvignon offers lifted aromas of fresh black currant and blackberry with hints of anise seed and green coffee bean, alongside delicate spice notes from the well-integrated oak aging. The Merlot contributes juicy dark plum fruit notes and a plush, round texture on the palate. The smaller amount of Petit Verdot adds a richness and full tannin structure, deep color and exotic aromas and flavors of black licorice, black pepper and wild violet, leading to a long persistent finish.

1995 Reserve Tapestry Red Blend

We're opening up the cellar!

1995 was a vintage that will burn long in the memory of most winemakers. After many years of drought, there were two major floods, one in January and one in March. Wet muddy soil conditions coupled with cool spring weather led to a late, prolonged flowering period. This caused poor set in some vineyards and average set in many others. A very hot summer followed which seemed to have the effect of keeping berry size small and creating softer acidity. Temperatures were moderate in early fall which led to a late harvest. Mother Nature was very kind to deliver a long Indian summer which gave us dry conditions in September and October, yielding grapes with great fruit intensity and varietal character.

2016 Reserve Tapestry Red Blend

The 2016 Tapestry is a powerful expression of the dream vintage, showing the true artistry of blending five Bordeaux-heritage grape varieties grown within the Napa Valley, which together contribute multi-layered flavors and complexity. The Cabernet Sauvignon imparts a generous core of brambly blackberry, cassis, and macerated blueberry, while the Merlot brings a vibrant, riper dark cherry fruit character. The Merlot also softens the tannins and adds plush rich texture on the mouth pleasing palate. Malbec contributed dark plum and briary blackberry notes, while the Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot completed the blend with delicate floral nuances of violet and wild sage. Well integrated warm baking spice notes of cinnamon and clove also pique the senses incorporated from having been aged in new French oak barrels – which heighten the overall aromatic expression and linger on the finish. The tannins provide intensity, structure and depth, ensuring this vintage will outlast many others with significant age-worthiness. This is a wine that is the perfect bridge between old and new world – showing the restraint, elegance and sophistication of Napa Valley.

2016 Reserve Clone 4 Cabernet Sauvignon

This very limited bottling of the 2016 vintage Clone 4 Cabernet Sauvignon, demonstrates the unique characteristics of wine made from vines planted to this single, outstanding clone during this exceptional 2016 vintage. A deep purple saturated hue, this Cabernet Sauvignon’s intense aromas and generous, fruit flavors are full to the brim with layers of juicy blackberry, dark plum and black licorice, woven into warmed baking spice notes of nutmeg, anise and clove alongside subtle brambly or savage (hence the grape’s name) wild herb bay leaf, mocha and sarsaparilla notes on the lengthy, mouthwatering finish. The wine is vibrant and balanced, with beautiful lifted acidity interwoven into a Cabernet of great intensity. Full, focused and rich flavors are supported by firm, yet supple, tannins that are nicely balanced with the oak spice from new French oak barrels. While enjoyable now, this wine will continue to develop complexity in the bottle and will age well for another 20+ years when stored at ideal cellar temperatures.

2016 Reserve Clone 6 Cabernet Sauvignon

This very limited bottling of the 2016 vintage Clone 6 Cabernet Sauvignon, demonstrates the unique characteristics of a wine made from vines planted to this single, outstanding clone during the exceptional 2016 vintage. Showing a more red fruit oak-driven profile than previous vintages, this Cabernet is restrained and elegant with red berry fruit aromas and flavors of black cherry, cassis, and briary smoked strawberry interwoven between more floral notes of violet and jasmine blossom. Crème Brûlée and caramel notes also come through from the toasty oak nuances leading to an extraordinary lengthy mouthwatering finish. The seamless satin-like tannins are round and lush as well as incredibly focused. This Cabernet is pointed and powerful, exhibiting strength and intensity, but also has a delicate balance with energy and finesse. The fruit is cradled by a line of vibrant acidity which weaves intricately, supporting the fruit and tannin structure. While enjoyable now, this wine will continue to develop complexity in the bottle and will age well for another 20+ years when stored at ideal cellar temperatures.
