The 2016 is our third designated vintage to be produced from the newest and 16th appellation in Napa Valley - Coombsville. The grapes were sourced from a small vineyard on Olive Hill Lane in Napa. Low yield and exceptional quality are the hallmarks of this newest appellation.
The 2016 vintage is excellent! Despite the drought, the vines produced amazing fruit. An ideal spring followed by just the right amount of heat in the summer resulted in the perfect hang time of the fruit to develop full flavor and aroma in the fruit and juice. An early kick off to the harvest and even weather allowed us to enjoy another great vintage. The fruit was hand harvested and rushed to the winery where it was destemmed into a small, open topped fermenter. It fermented on the skins to extract all the color and flavor possible. The wine was lightly pressed and then placed in small, French oak barrels for upwards of 24 months.
