Discover More About Our Products

Well-established hillside vineyards are the foundation of this wine, giving the finished blend its intense inner core of fruit. The complexity and balance of this vintage was achieved through diverse sourcing, from Rutherford, Carneros, and Oakville.

2015 was one of the earliest harvests on record in Napa Valley; a dry, warm winter with only 75% of normal precipitation resulted in small grape clusters with highly concentrated flavours. Bud break was early, and there was an uneven fruit set due to a long flowering period; this led to a lighter crop. A surge in hot temperatures in the final weeks of harvest brought the last of the crop in quickly. Overall, the 2015 vintage was early and light, with wines showing richness and deep flavour.

Jag gillade att dela detta vin med den där speciella personen.
Ett bra mellanlagrat vin med körsbärsfärg. Denna Waterstone luktar viol. Ett överraskande friskt vin.
Ett gott vin som vi serverade med köttbullar.

Jeg åpnet den med min beste venn.
Rødfarget med hint av lilla. Hint av toffee blir satt pris på. Smaken var litt oksidert.
God vin å drikke mellom måltidene.
