Very dark ruby in color, the 2015 Restoration Red Blend expresses aromas of dark cherry, black currant, with a subtle floral component of rose petals. The nose is complex with nuances of chocolate brownie dusted with cocoa powder and forest floor. The sweet oak spice is prominent yet integrated. The flavor is big, voluptuous, and elegant, with rich depth of dark cherry and Santa Rosa plum. With balanced acidi ty, good body and texture, the tannins are well resolved, providing a long, fruitful finish.

Vineyard Notes

Yverdon Vineyard – Spring Mountain (93.7%): Located on the east side of Spring Mountain, the soils are sedimentary, shallow, generally well drained, sandy loam in texture, uniquely mineral rich, and acidic with low fertility. They yield wines that are distinctive with dark fruits and firm tannin.

 

Wallis Vineyard – Diamond Mountain (5.9%): The soils are uplifted volcanic that are very fine-grained, gritty in texture, and interspersed with igneous rock. Rich Cabernet’s with extra depth are produced here in this AVA.

 

Keyes Vineyard – Howell Mountain (0.4%): Located near the town of Angwin, at roughly 1,850 ft. elevation, this Howell Mountain vineyard sits adjacent to the Las Posadas State Forest. The mountainous soil is predominantly volcanic, shallow with low fertility, and producing Merlot that expresses dark fruits like blackberry and dark currant.


Production Notes

The 2015 winter was one of the driest on record for Napa, although we did receive 75% of normal precipitation. The relatively dry, warm winter promoted early bud break and a cool spring supported a long flowering period. The balance of the season was moderate to warm, the crop was very light, with small clusters, small concentrated berries, and the fruit ripened in most cases, a good two weeks early. A moderate harvest gave way to a warm spell that completed the ripening on an early note.
