Deep garnet-purple in colour. The bouquet opens up with a range of fresh berries – blackberry, blueberry, boysenberry, and cranberry. Just behind the fruit is beautiful warming spice – cardamom, cinnamon, and nutmeg – along with black and white peppercorn. There are additional layers of more earthy notes – damp soil, crushed granite, and cured tobacco. The palate is full-bodied, with a round, silky texture that is beautifully framed by firm yet supple tannin. A beautiful and complex finish.

Dating back to 1881, this property is one of the oldest operating wineries in the Napa Valley, known then as Mount Eden Winery. After Repeal, the vineyard was kept up as part of the Fagiani Ranch. In 1974, proprietors James and Anne McWilliams restored winemaking back to the old ranch with winemaker Nils Venge, and brought the vineyard to prominence with dynamic, long-lived wines under the name of Villa Mt. Eden Winery. In 1986 the McWilliams sold the Villa Mt. Eden brand to Stimson Lane Wine & Spirits, a subsidiary of the U.S. Tobacco Co. This deal allowed Stimson Lane access to the vineyards through a property lease, but the wine was made offsite. In 1994 Stimson Lane gave up the lease on the Oakville estate vineyard property and moved the Villa Mt. Eden brand to its current home at Conn Creek Winery.
