The 2016 Syrah is deep garnet-purple colored with lifted black cherries, black berries and blueberry compote with notions of olives, herbs, peppered salami and violets. The palate is full, rich and seductive with firm, rounded tannins and layers of perfumed fruit, finishing very long.

The key to the wine is the bright acidity that ties everything together. This is a great example of what top Russian River Chardonnay sites can produce when wine making is focused on balance.

The wine is aged in Atelier Centre France and Chassin cooperage for 14 months with 50% new barrels. The Platt site, like Grand Cru Chablis sites, is expressive of the vineyard terrior and reflective of a balanced barrel regime. Each site is allowed to express itself and that means that each of the wines has a unique barrel program and wine chemistry that reflect that particular site in a given vintage.

The 2016 Herson Family Vineyards "Persuasion" Cabernet Sauvignon is balanced, complex, distinctive, and is connected to its Napa Valley terroir. It has a long finish that goes well beyond fruitiness.

No technological gimmicks or additives were used making this wine. It was crafted by one of Napa Valley’s iconic winemakers who puts his trust in his instinct and palate when creating wines that are among Napa Valley’s finest.

2016 was an extraordinarily epic vintage. It was the fifth consecutive outstanding vintage, and at the time of harvest, we thought it was the best of the decade. All of our fruit slowly matured and ripened, containing the proper phenolics that we strive to have every vintage. We had a decent winter, which meant that we had more irrigation water and more control of hang-time on the vines. With more hang time came more complexity and character, creating more balance in the vineyards. With a total production of 562 cases of the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon, this elegant powerhouse all hails from highly-esteemed, volcanic Napa areas such as the Pritchard Hill area, Howell Mountain, Atlas Peak, and our very own Rockwell Ridge estate vineyard (35 feet below Howell Mountain). We’re honored that this wine recently won GOLD at Texsom (back-to-back years!), arguably the most prestigious wine competition in the country featuring 19 Master Sommeliers and 16 Masters of Wine on their judging panel.

The 2016 "Appassionata" displays an incredibly opaque, purple core with hints of magenta and ruby on the rim. The nose delights with aromas of blackcurrant liqueur, blueberry, blackberry, black cherry and violets over complex secondary notes of cacao, tobacco, a touch of wet leather, crushed earth, a kiss of ground coffee, finely crushed stones, vanilla bean and exotic baking spices.

2016 Cabernet Sauvignon (Coombsville) is superb. Dark, powerful, and savory, full-bodied, it packs a serious punch. The near-perfect 2016 growing season started early, saw ideal weather conditions throughout and wrapped up as the valley's first significant fall rainstorm arrived on October 14. Thanks to a relatively steady and mild July and August and then a series of warm days at the end of the growing season, vineyards were able to progress to perfect ripeness. Wines from the 2016 vintage are now quietly developing in cellars throughout Napa Valley and vintners are pinching themselves and smiling for the gift it appears Mother Nature has given them: a fifth consecutive vintage of stellar quality Napa Valley wines.

This is a dark, sensual wine. Black cherry, mocha, chocolate, leather, and spice all flesh out in a powerful wine that shows the more flamboyant side of the vintage to great effect.
