    Grown in the “Right Bank of Napa Valley” aka, The upper Carneros region where the foothills of the Mayacamas Mountains stretch into the Carneros with a fan of volcanic soil that intrudes into the mostly clayloam that dominates the rest of the region. This magical spot favors varieties like Merlot and Cabernet Franc and has a cooler micro-climate than the rest of the valley. This difference allows for a longer growing season for full flavor development at lower sugar levers (translation: lower alcohol), while maintaining a brightness that gets lost in a warmer region. 

    Like striking a major chord, the three varieties of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon, harmonize brilliantly - like they were always meant to be together. The wine opens with floral aromas of violet and rosemary, followed by a fruit stand of aromas and flavors reminiscent of blackberry, black plum, currant and black cherry. The primary fruit notes lead into more complex and earthier notes of black olive, sage, star anise, cocoa and a hint of vanilla that softens an otherwise youthful flavor profile.
