2018 was an amazing Napa Valley vintage with Mother Nature cooperating in every way to ensure ideal growing conditions throughout the season. A very deep shade of ruby forms an inviting first glance. On the nose you will appreciate subtle earthy notes enhanced by the scent of dried roses and hints of black cherry leading to a richly textured palate accented by finely-grained tannins. The finish brings forward the elegance of the palate with added depth and a long lingering memory. This wine stresses the balance and structure so reminiscent prior Transformations and will be the ideal pairing for the special cuisines that mark the welcome change from summer to fall.
