"The 2013 Proprietary Red Estate is a blend of 73% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19% Merlot and 8% Petit Verdot. This wine was aged in 85% new Taransaud oak for 19 months prior to bottling of 650 cases. The wine is a beauty, with loads of charcoal, scorched earth, blackcurrants and blackberry fruit present, along with underlying smoky notes. It is dense purple, full-bodied, and rich, with moderate tannin. This wine will benefit from another 4-5 years of cellaring and drink well for another 20-25 years.

Please note that due to the low availability and high demand for Roy Estate, this wine is non-discountable.

Stunning bold, rich yet elegant entrance on the pallet that lingers with ripe red and dark fruits. Deep black fruit, well integrated tannins and elegant aromas. A real pleasure. Very limited production.

The Buoncristiani O.P.C. is our Napa Valley proprietary red blend. In the quest to create a wine uniquely ours, we discovered the synergy of marrying Napa Cabernet Sauvignon with Syrah, while also folding in further complexity of texture and flavor with Napa Malbec and Merlot blenders. Grapes are sourced from some of Napa’s most prestigious vineyards including Hyde, Stagecoach, Hossfeld and Bennett. Just like our winemaking fathers before us, with “Ol’ Pa’s Cuvée” we four brothers continue the family tradition of handcrafting blends that help accentuate the enjoyment of life.

Bright, medium ruby color with purple overtones. The wine offers generous aromas of violet, plum, anise, cassis, and mint with restrained floral overtones. On the palate, it is light and well-balanced clean fruit. Medium body and ripe tannins with juicy plum, blackberry and dusty coffee notes in the background, all magnified on a long, subtle finish.

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!

This ethereal Red Blend combines bold, mountainside structure with refined finesse, purity, and sophistication. Intense dense aromas of bright bing cherry, jammy brambleberry and blueberry, vanilla, rose water, and perfume are beautifully intertwined with rich mocha, earthy truffles, delicate minerality, seared leather, and butterscotch on the palate. With brilliant acidity, silky tannins, and balanced structure, we experience luxurious elegance fit for a king.

"This exciting new blend exhibits a dark purple hue enhanced by the use of Petite Sirah and Malbec with tiers of ripe cherries, fleshy plums, blackberry and blueberry fruit, with a nice spice box of dried sage, cloves, cinnamon and cedary notes. This well-structured wine has beautifully integrated, firm and fine grain tannins which gives this wine a velvety mouth-feel with a complex and lingering finish."
