92 W.E.- Medium-bodied, loads of Blackberry & Blueberry, yet not overly fruity because of the floral/spicy/earthy flavors going on. Velvety-laced tannins make the wine stand tall from start to finish. Really lovely…full-flavored yet with graceful restraint.
In 2015 we took a different approach for the Bodega Rancho program, opting to combine all of our Bennett Valley fruit into a single blend - the profound sum of Vivio and Jemrose Vineyard. Beautiful aromatics, supple texture and medium density.
Skyhook is the manifestation of a love for Rhone varietals and they ability to meld into fascinating blends. For our 2017 Red Wine, Syrah - with its savory, dark fruit character and soft tannin, is intertwined with Grenache’s broad, resonant fruit and warm spice.
The 2021 Proprietary Red Blend is a classic Left Bank style with Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, and Petit Verdot that is rich, juicy, and approachable and will improve with time in the bottle
Migliavacca… a legacy as storied as Napa itself. In 1866, Napa City (as it was called then) was a humble river town with a nascent wine industry. Giacomo Migliavacca and his downtown winery ruled its proliferation for the next five decades: the city's first self-made millionaire, the county's first patent holder, the state's largest wine producer. Nearly a century after its disappearance at Prohibition, over 150 years since its founding, the Migliavacca family offers this revival of Napa's history to you.
93 Points Wine Spectator Ripe but fresh, this lets alluring boysenberry and mulberry notes stretch out slowly, with a mix of singed apple wood and anise playing a supporting role. Reveals light bramble and violet hints that peek in on the well-fruited finish. Shows good embedded energy. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Best from 2023 through 2035. —J.M.
