This very limited production wine from the 2012 vintage was created specifically for our valued club members. Our Assemblage has a dense aroma of plums and vanilla with hints of floral spice. On the palette this wine is big and chewy with dark chocolate and savory characteristics. The tannins are refined and well integrated, allowing this wine to appeal to a broad spectrum of taste. The finish is long and structured leaving you longing for a second glass.
This vintage will be remembered as one of the best ever for Napa Valley, and it will recall the classic vintages that built Napa’s world class reputation. Summer and fall brought warm temperatures, but no heat waves, and a return to the classic Valley diurnal cycle. The results were moderate alcohol and crisp acidity with deep, rich color saturation and intense tannins, inviting comparisons with 2001, 2002 and 2007, but at record crop levels.
