Tasting Notes:  This wine has concentrated colors of deep purple that fades to a bright red rim.  Highly aromatic and flavorful with primary flavors of lush ripe black cherry, red & black currant, and black plum. Secondary aromatics and flavors of creme de cassis and marzipan compliment the fruit.  Intense red rock minerality and spice characterists of sage, nutmeg, and light vanilla compete on the palate.  This is a full bodied wine of moderate-plus tannins, lush fruit and vibrant acidity.

Winemaker's Notes: Sourced from the Gandona Estate Vineyard on a sloping hillside high above Napa Valley and Lake Hennessey, the Gandona Encosta was harvested between September 24th and October 17th, 2012.  The wine spent an average of 26 days in concrete tanks to ferment, and were aged 22 months in 60% new French Oak barrels.
