With each case (12 bottle) purchase, you'll enjoy a private vineyard wine tasting and cheese pairing with owners for 6 people! High in the hills above the Napa Valley, Lampyridae Vineyards rests just below the peak of Mt. Veeder. Your hosts, Ashley and John Derr will introduce you to the vineyard as you enjoy your wine and cheese pairings.
A gorgeous wine from famed Winemaker Aaron Pott! Opaque, with a rich, deep garnet color from center to rim. Layered aromas of blackberry, dark cherry and vanilla are prominent, with nut caramel toffee, earthy incense, coffee and bakeshop spices (vanilla, nutmeg and clove) emerging as the wine opens. The palate is spicy, with powerful acidity and tannins in perfect balance with the fruit and alcohol. Quite fresh on the finish, your palate will absolutely crave the next sip! With the ability to age over the next 15-20 years, this is definitely one for the collector.
