Firm, dense and chewy, showing extracted flavors of mocha, blackberry currant and licorice that are taut and framed by gutsy tannins. The fruit pushes through in the end, displaying a pleasant savory earthiness.
Red Stitch is very excited to share this wine from the 2012 vintage, a vintage that we believe will eclipse the legendary 2007 vintage and be looked back on as one of the most incredible growing seasons we have had in Napa for decades. Our fruit from the Coombsville AVA in Napa Valley thrives in the perfect environment that couples warm summer days with cooler evenings. In 2012, grapes experienced one of the longest growing seasons in memory with very little stress and a dry fall all culminating in an extraordinary balanced combination of ripe fruit and sweet tannins.
