Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Dried bay leaves, mint, and English plum give way to savory aromatic undertones of lightly roasted coffee, and tobacco. Focused acidity keeps everything in line on the palate, with supple tannins and a dense lingering finish.

Vineyard Notes
Owned by the Eakle family Pope Valley Winery is located in the northeastern 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 distinctive wines characteristic of the terroir.
Winemaker Notes
Berries were 100% destemmed to tank and fermented over the course of 15 days. Upon pressing, the wine was racked to French oak barrels, of which 40% were new, where it rested for 24 months prior to bottling.
Other Notes
Blend: 75% Merlot, 22% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Malbec
