From the eastern edges of the Napa Valley, this is a bright and effusive wine, balanced in red fruit. Small percentages of Petite Sirah, Petit Verdot and Grenache Blanc are included. It was barrel-aged for 18 months in French oak, 25% of it new. The wood is integrated and the texture softly layered.
