2014 Cloud's Nest Vineyard, Petit Verdot
October 2, 2014
The stunning inky purple coloring of this wine hints at the complexity and voluptuous qualities that it has to offer. Boasting fragrances of violet, ripe cherries, and spices such as clove and cinnamon, this Malbec’s unique and well-rounded aromas match the rich, juicy, and smooth flavors, ending with a long, soft, and velvety finish.
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.
