2016 was nearly a perfect growing season

The season started early, saw ideal weather conditions throughout and wrapped up just before the first significant rain storm hit on October 16th. Thanks to a steady and mild summer and then some warm days at the end of the growing season, vineyards were able to achieve incredible balance in ripeness and maturity. 

This is the second release of Single. Produced from a very famous vineyard in the Napa Valley, Ghost Block. Nestled on a gently sloping knoll on the north edge of Yountville, Ghost Block vineyard is named in honor of the historic Pioneer Cemetery for which it borders. The vineyard is 18 acres planted to Cabernet Sauvignon.

I suggest decanting this for a few hours prior to drinking, or just go for it and watch the wine evolve while you enjoy the bottle!

With its harmonious layers and textures, this wine is dark, inky and opaque, it presents aromas of plum, violets and dark cherries. Beautiful fruit cascades almost immediately to more savory flavors. A great, firm mineral spine runs through to the long, bittersweet finish. Ever-evolving in the glass, this wine is poised now and will age beautifully over the next 15+ years.  ENJOY!

Harvest date: October 5, 2015
Release Date:  May 2018
Brix: 24.9
pH: 3.65
% Alcohol: 14.6
Production: 100 cases

2015 harvest brought an unusually low yield of grapes per vine, which was not surprising given California’s ongoing drought, which was so extreme that the cover crops in many vineyards never took hold. A very poor fruit set in Spring set the tone for an extremely low production, but extremely high quality. "Early" was the key word all season, from budbreak to veraison to harvest.

This is the first vintage of Single and it may surprise some people that the first release is a Petit Verdot. Don’t tell that to the vines that produced the incredible grapes that yielded this truly extraordinary wine!

I suggest decanting this for a few hours prior to drinking, or just go for it and watch the wine evolve and you enjoy the bottle!

Soft, integrated tannin supports juicy black currant and a svelte layering of dark chocolate, punctured by an arsenal of beautiful violet aromas. This is a big wine with a healthy tannin structure so we can look for it to evolve graciously for another 20+ years. Enjoy!

Cheers!
