Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Our special Harvest of Joy wine is a toast to Robert Mondavi, offering a complex weave of blackberry fruit, unsweetened mocha, expresso coffee, dried herb and sweet baking spices lifted by a hint of violet floral. The tannins are firm and beautifully integrated in this celebratory wine blend. 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Cabernet Franc, 14% Malbec, 14% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot
Vineyard Notes
2014 started with worrisome, drought-like conditions, and many feared a parched, dry spring as in 2013. Refreshingly, spring rains came in February and into March providing water for the soils and filling reservoirs. The wine growing season will most be remembered for the August 24th earthquake that occurred just as harvest was commencing in the Napa Valley. The vines were not affected and harvest finished early, bringing in beautiful, healthy fruit. The grapes were harvested between September 10th and October 11th.
Production Notes
The grapes were hand-harvested into small containers and carefully sorted in our gravity-flow cellar. The clusters were gently destemmed directly into traditional French oak tanks for cold soak, fermentation and extended maceration – a total of 35 days of wine to skin contact – maximizing the extraction of varietal character and complexity while keeping the tannins round and supple. The new wine was drained and gently pressed into 100% new French-oak barrels for malolactic fermentation, assuring seamless integration of fruit and oak. The final blend was assembled through repeated tasting trials over twenty-four months of barrel aging. The wine was bottled in November 2016.
