Dark and savory, this wine is complemented by juicy black cherries and subtle leather aromas. It is bright and voluptuous with warm baking spice and cedar character with a steady finish exuding ripe tannins.

Pope Valley winery is located in the northeast hills just beyond Howell Mountain in Napa Valley. Our two estate vineyards with a combined 80 planted acres, at the winery and our Eakle Ranch vineyard yield rich and distinctive wines characteristic of the terroir.
Berries were 100% destemmed to tank and fermented over the course of 21 days. Upon pressing, the wine was racked to French oak barrels, of which 50% were new, where it rested for 24 months prior to bottling.
