Our single vineyard wines are an expression of their terroir, which embraces the site, soil, slope, exposure, and climate of each vineyard.

2021 ROYAL APPOINTMENT

Cabernet Sauvignon

Our 2021 Royal Appointment weaves together the rich, concentrated elegance and power of some of the best valley floor vineyard sites from Calistoga & Stags Leap. This wine is aged for 21 months in the finest French oak barrels and blended with meticulous care by Philippe Melka. The result – a Cabernet with a complex array of aromas and flavors that delivers a plush, mouth-filling structure with soft, elegant tannins. It offers a bouquet of dusty raspberries & blackberries, plums, dark currants, wildflowers, cacao and spice that follow through on the palate. A bit softer than our single vineyard wines, this wine is drinking beautifully in its youth and will offer greater nuance and complexity with cellaring.

2021 Noble Right

Proprietary Red

Made in a Right Bank Bordeaux-style, Philippe Melka blends together both varietals and vineyards to create a symphonic compilation of aroma and flavor. Our Spring Mountain Merlot gives this wine its rich, powerful flavor while our Spring Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon provides structure and a layered complexity. Our Shifflett Ranch Merlot lends the velvety texture and profound elegance inspired by the wines of Pomerol and Saint-Émilion. This wine is deep purple-hued, with a rich nose of dark blue fruits, black currants, cassis, crushed violets, leafy herbs, and warm baking spice. It is medium to full-bodied, has silky smooth tannins and a stacked, concentrated mid-palate, lush mouthfeel, and a long, beautiful finish.

Our take on Clone 15 Cabernet from Keenan’s Big K vineyard, shows its elegance and beauty layer by layer. This deep purple/ruby-hued wine offers a classic Spring Mountain bouquet of blackberries, dark currants, brambly underbrush, tobacco, earth and leather. It builds beautifully on the palate and is full-bodied, layered, and complex with intense, yet smooth tannins. Clone 15 is known for its ageability due to its solid structure and high levels of anthocyanins – cellar it with confidence as this mountain Cabernet will gracefully age for decades to come.

2021 Marquess

Cabernet Sauvignon

Nestled among the rugged eastern ridges of the Napa Valley, Melanson Vineyard is one of a handful of exceptional vineyards that share an enchanted slope called Pritchard Hill, which is unquestionably one of the greatest terroirs in the Valley. This area is known for producing big, dense and complex Cabernet Sauvignons and our 2021 Marquess is no exception. It exudes a beautifully complex bouquet of crème de cassis, ripe blue fruits, cacao powder, tobacco and graphite. Hitting the palate it’s powerful, full-bodied, and concentrated with wonderfully integrated acidity, a chalky minerality, polished tannins, flawless balance, and a great finish.
