Fresh blackberry, rasberry and vanilla bean leap out of the glass as the aromatics. Precisely integrated velvety tannins engulf a dark cherry fruit profile that finishes long.
Dr. Kenefick was a practicing neurosurgeon in San Francisco when he first visited the area in 1970 and fell in love with the Napa Valley. Eight years later, he found this remarkable property, a 250-acre Calistoga ranch. Tucked into the foothills of the craggy Palisades, the ranch looked out onto a beautiful valley set within two mountain ranges. Nearly half the property was planted with old Italian varietals that had been head-pruned and dry farmed.
