Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Aromas of sweet cedar, plum, and dried herb hint at the juicy flavors of plum and pomegranate in the glass. Subtle accents of green olive, earth and spice harmonize beautifully with the dark, rich fruit. Vibrant acidity helps the flavors linger on the palate, while integrated oak lengthens the finish.
Vineyard Notes
The nine-acre Suscol Ranch is located in Jamieson Canyon, south of the city of Napa. The area is very cool, with dense fog early in the season and windy conditions all year long. Planted on a gentle, north-facing knoll of deep, loamy soil, the vines are cordon trained to give the grapes maximum sun exposure. The cool conditions allow the fruit to mature slowly, gracefully developing flavors and mature tannins.
