Winemaker Celia Welch has produced an incredible Red that exemplifies a complete Napa Valley Red with silky tannins and great purity of fruit, all for a more than reasonable price when considering its pedigree. This 2016 is a blend of 83% Cabernet, 14% Merlot, 3% Petite Verdot and comes from their estate and grower vineyards. “Once in a handful of years, Mother Nature serves up a growing season in which every detail is just exactly right. A Spring full of enough rainfall but not too much, a Summer of enough heat but not too much, and an Autumn with warm days and cool nights. The 2016 Inspirado captures this season beautifully, showing warm blueberry, spiced plum, and dark cherry notes, all floating atop more subtle base notes of vanilla and toasty oak. The palate impression reflects the aromas, with ripe fruit, a touch of spice, and a finish that showcases the soft, satiny texture of this beautiful blend.” – Celia Welch. 722 cases were produced.
