Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
This 100% Cabernet Sauvignon was grown from four of our best blocks of the Hirondelle Estate Vineyard, including clones 4,7,337 and See. The wine has deep violet aromas with a hint of forest floor. Displaying flavors of raspberry jam, toast, espresso and fresh pastry, there is a long, velvety finish.
Production Notes
The 2015 growing season proved to be warm and at times, quite hotter than normal, meaning that harvest started and ended early. Along with the unusual heat, the Napa Valley experienced a series of rains in the early part of the season that washed pollen off of the flowering grapes. When this condition called “shatter” happens, some flowers do not turn into fruit and essentially means that many of the grapes on each cluster never form. The resulting low yield meant we had a significantly smaller crop and a smaller production of many of our wines. However, the ‘less is more’ theory gave us some of the best, most concentrated fruit have seen in a long time, delivering beautiful, fruit forward wines in the end.
