2012 Davis Estates Zephyr
Vineyard: 100% Napa Valley
Grapes: 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc, 3% Merlot, 2% Petit Verdot
Vintage: The 2012 growing season was truly textbook – ideal bud break, flowering, berry set, warm summer and fall days with lots of foggy nights, ideal for flavorful ripening.
Winemaker’s Notes: Hints of blackberry and tea on the nose precede a classic Napa Valley hillside vineyard rendition of a classified growth Bordeaux, with the complexity and richness from the four classic varietals intermingling so very elegantly.
