The wine displays an intense aromatic intricacy and subtle notes of vanilla and honeysuckle. On the palate, the wine displays a well-balanced mouthfeel, with lingering flavors of Asian pear and meyer lemon. It flaunts a unique minerality and a vibrant acidity that characterizes this beautiful corner of Los Carneros, Napa Valley

Fermentation: 50% Femented and Aged in Stainless Steel Tanks; 50% Fermented and Aged in French Oak Barrels for 9 months (15% New). After primary fermentation, 50% of the lots went through malolactic fermentation. The wine was aged on its lees for nine months, with weekly bâtonnage (lees stirring) for about 3 months, to add complexity and enhance mouthfeel.
