Growing Conditions

In 2014, a warm year in Napa Valley, these nearly dry-farmed vines planted in gravelly volcanic alluvial deposits at the Frediani Vineyard have provided just that.

Nose

Aromatics of dark cherry, raspberry confiture, talc, hot stones, vanilla-laced cookie and bbq spice fill the glass.

Palate

When the palate hits you, it is with a powerful impression of structure and rich density, mouthcoating sweet fruit and lush tannins.
