Audēre (Latin)--To dare! To venture! Audēre was born from premium hillside Napa Valley grapes. All of this mountain fruit comes from Atlas Peak, Howell Mountain, Pritchard Hill, & the Silverado foothills, and was barrel aged for 23 months in 90% new French & Hungarian oak. Unlike the 2013 Audēre, which was predominantly Merlot based, this 2014 vintage is technically a Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon even though we classify it as a "red blend." This gives us the freedom every vintage to create the best possible blend after we put together our top tier flagship wines. 

The label design is similar to last year’s vintage which played upon a gothic theme of the Hertelendy Family coat of arms used on our other labels, but with a twist. Pour yourself a glass, and then dim the lights to reveal the surprise...if you dare!

Carpignano and Frog Tree are both tiny 10 acre vineyards.  Frog Tree is a younger planting and provides great power and structure as well as a touch of menthol thanks to a small grove of Eucalyptus trees on the backside of the vineyard. Carpignano adds plush and ripe fruit flavors that come from unusually long hang times prior to harvest.
