ROCK GARDEN 2012 PROPRIETARY RED "WILLIAMS' CUVEE" NAPA VALLEY 750mL

There is a spot where the rolling hills of Carneros gain elevation and meet with the rugged slopes of Napa Valley’s Mount Veeder. It is in this area where we find the vineyard for this blend of Cabernet Franc and Merlot. The soils here are predominately clay, very thin and shallow, providing good drainage and poor fertility. Since these vines struggle to retain moisture, this aids in keeping crop yields small, allowing the grapes to ripen and develop intense, vivid flavors. This wine has a dark ruby/garnet color and the aromas are intense with herb, sweet tobacco, raspberry, currant, grilled meats and violets that give way to flavors of cocoa, black plum, black currants, wet minerals and a mélange of red fruits. This is beautifully proportioned, as it has one foot in the new world and one foot in the old world. It drinks great on its own, but pair it with some beef and you’ve got one heck of a meal!
