Promontory Red Napa Valley 2013

Aromas are diverse and complex, with no single primary scent standing above the rest. Some of the more subtle facets are beginning to surface: wet stone, graphite, leather, and fresh spices. Brighter notes create a tension in the nose that then transfers to the palate. In the beginning it is gentle and silky, developing slowly and purposefully into a synthesis of minerality, freshness, and vibrancy. The wine shows its potential for aging with a balance of structure and lightness, as well as a latent potential only to be revealed with time.

Promontory Red Napa Valley 2013

Only four inches of rain had fallen from January until the first week in April, when budbreak occurred. While the 2013 vintage will be remembered as an early year, here at Promontory harvest didn’t begin until late September due to the cool air and frequent fog that circulate within the territory. Yields were smaller than average, and ripeness was reached within ideal and measured conditions - allowing us to capture the essence of each block without haste. We harvested the first blocks on September 25th starting with the western ridge, then continued on to the east facing slopes of metamorphic formations and ended October 15th with the lower volcanic blocks. Due to the complexity of soil, exposure, and elevation, nearly 42 passes were made resulting in 30 distinct vinifications. These aged independently in barrel for almost a year before blending, and then entered the large Austrian oak casks to finish aging over the next few years. The solid core of the final blend retained a characteristic levity that we have come to find familiar.
