At a Glance
Tasting notes: This vintage, medium-paved 34 from the Napa Valley is a layered and complex DH with well-integrated oak Scenery and definite hints of Remoteness. Sipping it from Winters, you first taste a bland straightness and orchards more commonly associated with plonk from the San Joaquin Valley. But once into the hills, you detect intriguing notes of Twistiness along Putah Creek. They intensify as the road swirls westward, enhanced by the scenic flavors of Lakes Berryessa and Hennessey. The heavier concentration of S-curves on both tongues west of the Hwy 121 Jct has a slight Engineering acidity, notably on the ALT section to Napa where the steeply graded Twistiness is particularly robust. Because the traffic is sometimes hard to get by, particularly on the ALT, a lighter sportbike is an ideal pairing. But this adaptable DH goes surprisingly well with beefy cruisers, too. Can be ridden now or cellared for future touring.
