description

Known as one of the oldest and prettiest wineries in the Napa Valley. Established in 1882, the estate features a stone castle built into the hillside overlooking a Chinese garden, lake, and vineyards that reach to the base of Mt. St. Helena.

We make classic style wines promoting balance, elegance and age-ability. We defined our winemaking style in 1972. Fruit, first and foremost, poised by an underlying structure of natural acidity for an elegant and balanced wine. We start by planting the right grape in the right place, then capture and carefully nurture the natural flavors and structure without treading on the inherent qualities of the fruit.

"Bright ruby-red. Captivating, high-pitched aromas of cassis, licorice pastille, bitter chocolate, violet, rose petal and mocha. Juicy and tightly wound, with fresh acidity energizing the middle palate but keeping the wine's dark berry flavors restrained today. There's a lightly peppery quality that gives away the vintage, but this highly aromatic wine is a big success for the year and very well made." (ST, International Wine Cellar)
