Region: Calistoga, Napa Valley, CA
A vibrant, deep red in color, this wine comes from two of the estate’s best barrels of the vintage! Aromas of blueberry pie, dark cherry and vanilla spice lead the charge, complimented by dried herbs, licorice and oaky notes. Rich and full bodied, this wine commands its presence on the palate, with a tannin and acid structure that will allow for 5-10 years of aging. Pair it with a grilled steak at your next cookout – or cellar it for many years of enjoyment!
