In 2016, Mother Nature treated the Napa Valley with a dream growing season to top off her five superlative vintage run.  When the history books are written, this vintage will stand with the best and is destined to exceed the expectations of wine lovers from near and far.  Our 2016 Metamorphosis will greet you with a vibrant deep ruby hue followed by an elegant yet restrained nose demonstrating a generous dose of black fruit with accents of cranberry, yellow plum and dried rose petals.  The complex palate demonstrates unusual freshness and luscious mouthfeel framed by fresh acidity and structured tannins that bode for long term aging potential with added notes of cassis, toffee and just a dusting of sweet oak for added charm.  The lingering finish resonates as a cohesive melody bringing together the distinct elements of nose and palate while showcasing finely grained tannins and a desire for another glass. The 2016 Metamorphosis demonstrates a rare amalgam of Napa (specifically St. Helena) character at its core complementing a familiar Left Bank Bordelaise style.
