Winemaker Brian Mox Notes
Vineyard: The Estate Linda’s Hillside Vineyard is located in the southwestern bench lands of Napa Valley, in the Oak Knoll District appellation. The prime hillside vineyard on the Darms Lane estate is named in honor or Linda Bump co-owner of Darms Lane who passed away in 2007 from Ovarian Cancer. It is the finest wine we make – a tribute to her. Growing Season Notes: 2012 was a “classic” Napa vintage in many regards. Weather conditions during bloom were ideal leading to a generous set in the grapes. This allowed us to be more aggressive in our “green” thinning at veraison to create more even ripeness in the remaining clusters at harvest time. Temperatures during September were mild and consistent allowing the grapes to slowly ...more... ripen. We harvested the hillside fruit on October 19th. Winemaker Tasting Notes: Dark ruby in color, our finest 2012 wine offers ripe blackberries and dark cherries with copious notes of cigar box and a hint of minerality. Well balanced with refined tannins, drink now after decanting or age for a few years in your cellar. You will be rewarded for your patience.
