“Aromas of blueberries, cherries and baking spices. Some cedar too. It’s full-bodied with chewy tannins. Grained and juicy with fruity character, supported by an elegant structure and good acidity. Balanced and flavorful through the long finish.” - James Suckling

“Imagine alternating between milk chocolate covered blackberries and s'mores tossed in baking spices. Lush, big, bodacious, jammy, spicy, and loaded with blueberry cream, cassis, plum, currant, sage, vanilla and gloriously toasted oak. A genuine crowd pleaser for aficionados of hedonistic Napa reds. Only 130 cases produced.” - California Wine Advisors 

Winemaker Notes
“I may sound like a bit of a broken record but every year of vine age and added attention to farming in the Pozzan Vineyard is really paying off for The Figure bottling. Our predictions of what was to come for the 2018 Figure after early sampling from barrel have come true. The Figure is deeply colored, with layers of dense fruit and an exotic perfume. It still has plenty left in reserve to unwind with some cellar time. If you loved the 2016 Figure, the 2018 is several steps up and a great candidate for cellaring.” - Thomas Rivers Brown
