"We combine the best of our vineyards in this wine. Each year our properties express themselves slightly differently, and our role is to take the best of what they give us and craft a truly exceptional wine. The Pocai Ranch generally brings power, boldness & dark red fruits, while our Fig Tree Vineyard provides the broadness and the layers of flavors and spice. We manage each site specific to its unique characteristics, with the goal of only producing the highest quality grapes and resulting wine.Brambly raspberry, caramel, clove, and blackberry jam are the first impressions with this Napa Cab. The 2017 has a lovely complexity and roundness which reminds us of both bacon and strawberry compote, The palate of the wine is silky smooth, with diverse hints of smoked meats, cocoa, cranberry and tobacco This is an elegant and approachable wine, which is showing well now and will continue to open up over the next few months.
