Vineyard Notes
High above the Napa Valley floor in the Mayacamas Mountains, our Cloud’s Nest Vineyard embodies the greatness of the Mt. Veeder appellation. This high altitude vineyard is incredibly steep with gravelly soil, and like all our vineyards, must be patiently farmed by hand. Its cool, eastern exposure allows for extended hang time, which imbues the grapes with greater complexity and character.
Production Notes
The 2012 growing season began with an early budbreak and mild weather in the spring made for a heavy berry set. We had beautiful consistent warm days throughout the growing season coupled with cool nights and foggy mornings, ensuring good slow ripeness. The phenolic maturity was in unison with sugar ripening. The warm fall with very little rain made for a harvest without incident. The resulting wines have beautiful balance and depth.
Winemaker Notes
“True to its Mt. Veeder origins, this wine is extracted and complex with an intense, deep ruby purple color. Enticing, sweet blueberry is pronounced on the palate, while a hint of floral lingers in the background. The wine is extracted and rich, yet remarkably balanced. It offers a unique take on a varietal not often found in the Napa Valley.” – Mario Monticelli
