Rich, vibrant, and juicy, this wine boasts aromas of cherry and wild berry, with soft notes of black pepper. Tightly packed layers of cranberries, wild berries, and ripe cherries flow together with a touch of allspice for a rich, full flavor. Moderate tannins show in the rich, mouth-filling finish.
The Rombauer family winery, founded in 1980, is located on the northeastern edge of the valley on a secluded tree-covered knoll overlooking the Napa Valley. Their philosophy of winemaking is exemplified by their vineyard selections and limited production. This policy allows them to offer wines of consistently high quality as a complement to fine foods and life's pleasures. Another philosophy, but one of wine and food called "The Joy of Wine," goes back to Koerner Rombauer's ancestors from the winegrowing region of Reingau, Germany, where wine is considered an essential complement to a meal.
