Named for Tom's mother; a blend inspired by elegance, opulence and firm character.
VARIETAL: Cabernet Franc and Merlot
APPELLATION: Mt. Veeder
Notes: The rugged slopes of Mt Veeder produce tiny quantities of intensely flavored grapes. The microclimate is very different from the Napa Valley floor, hovering above the fog bank. During the final days of the growing season, the mountain's cool days and warm nights result in flavors that are intriguingly distinct from our Oakville fruit.
This Cabernet Franc & Merlot blend exudes beautiful feminine wiles, with seductive and elegant bouquet of red-currant, violets, blueberry jam, fresh baked waffle cone and gingersnap cookies. Unmistakable mountain chaparral characters with a concentrated, bright, and plush body. Blackberrycoulis, dried cranberries, and wild strawberries mingle with notes of sage, thyme, bay leaf and hints of lavender. This wine will delight the taste buds for decades to come. Enjoy now or for the next 10-15 years.
