2007 Napa Valley Cuvee
Incredibly integrated, offering notes of red currants, raspberry stems and peach pits blended seamlessly with milk chocolate powder and a friendly metallic minerality. A crushed, herbal red pepper ties it all together, with just the right amount of spice. Generously fleshy, the palate adds in juicy plums and chalky, textured tannins that run long through the smooth finish. A holistic, unified wine in all dimensions. Delicious now, and for years to come.
