The Fabric of the Land is crimson red with plum highlights. Aromas of blackberry, dark chocolate, and lightly toasted almonds with spices and vanilla. Ripe black cherry, cocoa, and rosemary with a velvety mouthfeel, vibrant fruit, and soft tannins.
Each vineyard lot is kept separate until final blending. Cellaring begins with a deep cold soak, so the skins give up all the phenolics and color they can during fermentation. Cold and long fermentations allow ample time to coax these elements out. Finally, extended maceration to soften harsh tannins then aged in French Oak barrels.
The Petite Sirah adds spice and complexity, Merlot contributes round mouthfeel and soft tannins, Zinfandel provides a vibrant fruit core, and Petit Verdot gives structure and color to the final blend. The Fabric of the Land, Napa Valley.
