The 2017 Bucephalus was crafted using some of the best grapes found in the Napa Valley. Most of the fruit for the 2017 Bucephalus was harvested from Atlas Peak. The mountain AVAs are the ideal growing enviroment for producing fruit with huge concentration and immense depth. We blended a small portion of Syrah, Petit Verdot, and Malbec into the Bucephalus to help knit the blend together. The Syrah brings an intoxicating elixir quality to the wine. Together, these vineyard blocks create a powerful and well-structured wine.
The 2017 Bucephalus showcases aromas of cassis, sandalwood and clove. The aromas integrate beautifully with the rich, ripe, fruit flavors of blackberry and dark cherry, and maple syrup. This full bodied wine has intense depth and broad rich flavors.
