Pleasantly restrained black currant fruit typical of Napa's mountains. Creamy texture with lightly tugging tannins & balanced acidity.

Oaky and herbal. Mint, sage, licorice roots, pink peppercorns; the blend of grapes provides balance without sacrificing power. It's not a viscous syrup of a wine, like many Napa varieties are... but rather, mimics the old world layers and complexities of a Bordeaux blend. Happy Valentine's Day (explains the stickers)
