About the Winemaker:
Winemaker David Yorgensen crafts wine with the appreciation for quality vintages and sources fruit from top vineyards in the Napa Valley. He believes when one lets wine be itself, lets its character develop from within, rather than with an overabundance of external tampering, great wine happens. David's own wine brand, KIND, has racked multiple 99 point ratings from the Wine Advocate, and he brings the same passion, craft and enthusiasm to creating wines for Lampyridae Vineyards.

Lampyridae Vineyards
About the Vineyard:

Lampyridae Vineyards is the highest vineyard on Mt. Veeder, resting at 2,500 feet above the Napa Valley floor. High above the fog layer, the cooler days and warmer nights yield ideal ripening conditions for mountain Reds. The combination of elevation and volcanic ash soils results in low yields and produces wines of incredible complexity.

The vineyards are composed of 10 acres of Cabernet Sauvignon, 1 acre of Cabernet Franc, 1 acre of Syrah, 1 acre of Grenache, 1 acre of Zinfandel and a half acre of Petit Verdot. Lampyridae Vineayrds sources fruit to Beringer Vineyards, Fontanella Family Winery, Handwritten and Kind Cellars. 

Additional Winemaker Notes:
Cooperage: 9 Months in Rousseau Burgundy French Oak barrels, Medium plus toast

Food Pairing Suggestions:
Pair this warming, medium bodied, high alcohol Grenache with Fall dishes, like stews, roasts and meaty fish, like tuna steaks. Lamb shanks, and Thanksgiving Turkey are also a nice choice. Great bottle of wine to share during the cooler months ahead!
