Grand Vin№2 — 2015

Ashes & Diamonds Vineyard

Oak Knoll District

Napa Valley

ASHES & DIAMONDS’ Grand Vin is a wine of finesse and elegance that maintains fresh red and blue fruit flavors while exalting secondary characteristics of spice and herbal tones. The blend of Merlot and Cabernet Franc comes from 30-year-old vines grown in gravelly clay loam at ASHES & DIAMONDS Vineyard in the Oak Knoll District of Napa Valley.

In its library phase, the wine remains bright with baked plum tartine and tart blackberry notes, enveloped in fine-grained tannins. This tightly-knit wine requires several hours of decanting, a further sign of its potential for many years to come. (11/18/21)
