As the inaugural release of The North End, this blended wine opens with vivid fruit aromas of marionberry and black cherry. The rich, supple tannins, wound with energy and a pleasing lift of acidity, carry notes of smooth graphite and creamy oak. The blend finishes with an aromatic chord of cinnamon and violets.
This wine highlights esteemed vineyards in the “North End” of the Napa Valley, including vines grown in Calistoga, Northern St. Helena, and the mountainous appellations. The “North End” fruit shows a markedly rich and opulent side of Cabernet Sauvignon. Our blending efforts help to punctuate these characteristics in the final bottling.
