2008 Napa Valley Cuvee

Tasting Notes

This beauty is Blueberry City. Perfect, ripe and plump blueberries announce on the nose, blending with blueberry cobbler, plums and doughy deliciousness. The palate introduces darker cabernet qualities balanced alongside smokey undertones and a lithe, minerality. Texturally, the spongy tannins help the wine’s creamy consistency move from start to end, spiked with a fresh and delicate orange peel that keeps the flavors awake and active.
