Winemaker Faythe Stone-Brocka Notes
11 Barrels, 250 cases Napa Valley - Rutherford, Oakville, and St. Helena Hand sorted, fully destemmed, light crushing, 5-7 day cold soak, fermentations at 85 – 90 º F, put to barrel on full fermentation lees for ML. 19 months in 70% new French oak. The Halloween Release 2018 This Dark Lady laughs and dances; she will light your candles one by one until the brew is done. Inhale …soft notes of toast, brown spices, black currants, leather. Stop Talking… Drink in velvety cassis, rich plum, cocoa, sage, earthy minerals. Cellar her for the next 10 years, if you can wait that long. The Powerful 2016 Season was never dull in the Napa Valley. Lower yielding than 2015, therein providing acute purity. A very wet October put har ...more... vest to a halt. Warm, to cold, back to warm temperature swings made for an interesting growing season.
