This luxurious Napa cab is lush and expressive on the nose, aromas of truffle, dark berries, and lavender jump out of the glass. Rich and full-bodied on the palate, overflowing with juicy blackberry and black currant fruit. Earthy notes of tobacco and cedary oak lace a dark chocolate core.
We’re always on the search for new, interesting vineyards. While we went back to our favorite Howell Mountain spot (Beatty Ranch), we also hiked up the steep slopes of Calistoga to Montgomery Vineyards. Calistoga is known for its warm temperatures, volcanic soils, and excellent drainage. And 2012 was no different. Giving us grapes with high concentration, better acid retention, and optimal levels of balance and structure.
