Description

Generations is a Bordeaux-style blend created to honor their family's past, present and future. The fruit is night-picked from the estate vineyards in Yountville and aged in new French oak barrels. Aromas of black cherry, coffee bean and blueberry segue to a full-bodied wine with a long finish of ripe berry and toasty crème brûlée.

The harvest saw little rain as California was still in a drought, despite that fact there were above average yields. Well-timed rain in the spring helped with vine and berry development and a long harvest period allowed the fruit to fully ripen and develop complex flavors in the vineyard. Few spots of rain and some dry and warm cycles allowed the flavor in the berries to become intensely concentrated, providing quality fruit desired for wines.
