- Cellar Drink Now - 5 years (2021-2026)
- ABV 14.9%
- Closure: Cork
Bright yellow straw colour with hints of pale gold around the edges and a watery hue. Potent ripe peach, honeycomb, crème brulee and bacon fat aromas fill the olfactory senses with spicy nougat and roasted nut scents also evident. Rich, concentrated and luscious on the front half with ripe peach, apricot and honeycomb flavours to the fore, the back half enlivened by a burst of fresh acidity. Notions of crème brulee, citrusy nougat and spicy bacon fat ensue. Finishes dry with a long, rich yet balanced aftertaste.
Drink over the next 4-5 years.
While the reds get all the attention from this great estate, they also make a sensational Chardonnay. Their 2017 Chardonnay Red Shoulder Ranch comes from the cooler Carneros region, located in the southern part of Napa Valley, and it offers a full-bodied, rich, powerful style that carries loads of white currant and peach fruits as well subtle floral and brioche notes. It’s a classic Napa Valley Chardonnay that blends power and freshness. Drink 2020-2025.
