2019 Holiday Magnums
2012 Merlot & Cabernet
A combination of two magnums, both from 2012, Fedex 2-day included:
2012 Merlot Oak Knoll District of Napa Valley 1500ml --
This single vineyard wine comes from Jaeger Ranch on Big Ranch Road. The fruit was manually sorted and aged thirty months in a combination of French and American oak barrels, 50% new. The wine is balanced by sweet blackberry flavors and a tart raspberry sweetness that lingers on the finish. 164 cases produced.
2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville Napa Valley 1500ml --
The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon from Oakville comes from young vines grown in a deep composite gray clay soil with tiny, bright blue berries. We harvested by hand on the afternoon of October 22, and manually sorted and fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel for twenty-eight days. One barrel of Merlot from the Oak Knoll District was blended in (10%), and the wine spent thirty months in French and American oak barrels, 60% new. We produced ten barrels of this wine. The wine is layered and refined, with notes of blueberries, mild dried herbs, vanilla and confectioner’s sugar. 207 cases produced.
