2020 Special Reserve
TASTING NOTES -
For two decades, this wine has been the flagship of our production. Crafted from grapes grown from our Atlas Peak estate, this bottling exemplifies the classic mountain style that highlights the exceptional terroir of Napa Valley’s southeastern hills. A powerful and expressive nose of wild blackberries, red currants, mulberries, baking spice, dried lilacs, underbrush, and crushed stones makes for an inviting beginning to this liquid story, followed by a mid-palate full of dark fruits, wet minerals, spring flowers, and spiced tobacco. The finish is expansive, canvasing the palate with layers of dark fruits intertwined with formidable tannins, all reinforcing the quality of fruit hailing from this rugged mountain wilderness.
