ARRIVING OCTOBER 2019

BATCH #18, CABERNET SAUVIGNON, Napa Valley, 2017

“THE HOUSE”

“Some cellar wine for a special occasion, others enjoy it with no justification. Our Signature House Cabernet Sauvignon was sustainably crafted to make every day, a very special occasion”.

 -Malek Amrani

“The House” Cabernet Sauvignon Batch #18 was luxuriously crafted with minimal interference in both the vineyards and the cellar. Traditional winemaking includes extended skin maceration, aerative pumpovers and nearly 2 years of French Oak aging. 

Release Date: October 15th, 2019


BATCH #16, CABERNET SAUVIGNON,

SPRING MOUNTAIN DISTRICT, 2017

SINGLE VINEYARD

“Batch #16 is our 4th Single Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon release of 2019. Nested above the clouds in the Spring Mountain District of Napa, this batch conveys mountain fruit character that’s unique to its terroir. Powerful and energetic, this 100% Cabernet Sauvignon is a testament of the diverse World Class character, that only Napa Valley has.” -Malek Amrani    

This vineyard was first established at the turn of the 20th Century and replanted 100% Cabernet Sauvignon in 1995. The cooler temperatures and the harshness that mountain fruits have to endure during the growing season, gift us a powerful wine that has depth, complexity and intensity that’s unique to its terroir.

BATCH #17, Pinot Noir, CARNEROS, 2018

“BRUCE WAYNE’S BATCH”

SINGLE VINEYARD

“Blessed with ideal growing conditions, Napa’s 2018 vintage will be remembered for its exceptional quality. 2018 was also the year of the dog, so we named this batch after our assistant winemaker @Brucewaynethepuppy. Although he slept most of its growing season, his presence in the cellar was critical for crafting this world class Pinot Noir”.              

-Malek Amrani

Release Date: September 16th, 2019


BATCH #007, merlot, mount veeder, 2017

SINGLE VINEYARD

Only 1% of Napa Valley’s total wine production comes from Mt Veeder,  a steep hillside appellation in the Mayacamas mountains known for its unique terroir and flavor rich wines. Out of its 1000 acres of planted vines, 40 acres only are Merlot. 

Batch #007 articulates the authentic Bordeaux character of Merlot with an American ingenuity, labor and passion.

Release Date: June 3rd, 2019

BATCH #14, Sauvignon Blanc,

NAPA VALLEY, 2018

Our 3rd vintage Sauvignon Blanc was crafted from two Napa Valley vineyards to revile the most expensive and highly rewarded Sauvignon Blancs in the world. Don’t judge a wine by its price tag, this vice is at once an aperitif, a meal’s accolade or on its own- a joyful escape from the everyday…

Release Date: June 3rd, 2019


BATCH #10, PINOT NOIR ROSE, CARNEROS, 2018

A winemaker’s dream vintage. Consistent growing conditions and cooler temperatures allowed the grapes to slowly mature in 2018. Harvest across Napa Valley was generous with above average yields and high quality fruit. In Carneros, this immensely successful 2018 harvest gifted us the best Pinot Noir grapes we could wish for.

Release Date: January 24th, 2019
