Regular price $125.00

Complementary shipping *

WHY WE LOVE IT:

  • 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Petite Verdot, 5% Malbec

  • Estate, single vineyard organically farmed

  • Never ending finish; elegant and restrained

Super secret library wine release. Proprietary Bordeaux blend from acclaimed winemaker Celia Welch. An intense reflection of Oakville terroir, single vineyard estate wines.

WINEMAKER: Legendary Celia Welch

WHAT WE TASTED: Intense dark fruit, strong cola and black fruit, blackberries and fresh floral notes. A very firm core and never ending finish. As one would expect from a master winemaker of this caliber. An excellent Napa Valley vintage year as well. Drinking perfectly.

AVA DESIGNATED: Oakville, Napa Valley

 WHAT WE PAIRED:

  • Absolutely nothing. This baby deserves undivided attention!
  • Grilled Ribeye, garlic-buttermilk mashed potatoes
  • Chateaubriand, sauce bearnaise, potatoes Anna

PERSONALITY: The complexity of the vineyard shines through a progression of dark fruit, cherry, dusty cocoa, cool mint and more - what this Oakville estate is known for. Celia's extraordinary winemaking skills are on display. This vineyard is worthy of her talents.

    TECHNICAL:

    • Aged 20 months in 70% new French Oak
    • Each year of the Blend will have a distinct varietal percentage.
     *Summer shipping and temperature control rates in effect from April 1 through Sept 30 to cover insurance and cool packs. A small fee will be added to complimentary ground shipping.*
