Made from a family estate in the eastern wilds of Napa Valley, this small-production red is fermented in a concrete tank and aged in neutral oak. It retains ebullient freshness and focus, its fruit a mix of grape, cherry and plum. Around the edges are floral aromas and superb mineral characteristics.
