Very dark (opaque) ruby in color, the 2014 Bosché has rich, dusty blackberry and cassis aroma, with immense depth and complexity. The sweet oak spice is well integrated with spice nuances of cinnamon, clove, aromatic cedar, black pepper and dark cocoa powder. The flavor is big, voluptuous, soft and velvety, with rich great depth of black fruit. With balanced acidity, good body and texture, the tannins are well integrated providing a very long fruitful finish.

Vineyard Notes

Bosché Vineyard – Rutherford (100%): A small 22-acre vineyard located west of Hwy. 29, on the famed Rutherford Bench, the Bosché vineyard has very deep gravelly soils. A seasonal creek crosses the vineyard which indicates the water table to be high in the spring, providing water and nutrients for new shoot growth. As veraison approaches the water table drops, stressing the wines and intensifying the dark velvety fruit flavors. This is a natural area to grow Bordeaux varietals with dry farming or minimal drip irrigation.


Production Notes

The winter was one of the driest on record for the Napa Valley. When we did get rain however, it came right at the time the vines need it the most, promoting bud break and new shoot growth. The balance of the season was moderate to warm, the crop was abundant and the fruit ripened in most cases, a good two weeks early. We were thankful for a wonderful harvest, yielding great wines with immense depth of flavor.
