Mt. Veeder, Napa Valley
For the 2016 harvest, we had an almost perfect spring, the growing conditions during the summer had minor extremes and the ripening period was almost as ideal. September had a brief late heat spike and a touch of rain fell in October, rounding out a great season. Our Malbec from our estate vineyard on Mt. Veeder shows notes of boysenberry, and sweet rhubarb followed by a hint of cedar with great acidity and lush mountain tannins.
