“This flashy new discovery features velvety tannins and the trademark BOLD dark fruit flavors that have made this coveted vineyard source a collector favorite! The finish is monumental with seductive hints of cinnamon and Valrhona chocolate that remind us of far pricier reds from this vineyard’s world famous neighbors (enquire for details!) in the heart of Napa’s Oakville appellation. Pair this robust red with a juicy steak for a match made in Heaven!” - California Wine Advisors
