#95 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2016 The Syrah grapes are sourced from two amazing vineyards in the Napa Valley – Hudson in Los Carneros and Stagecoach on Atlas Peak. These unique AVAs lend this wine its signature characteristics. The cool, foggy Hudson vineyard imparts this wine with a smoky, gamey nose layered with white and black pepper, while the sunny and rocky Stagecoach vineyard is responsible for the concentrated blueberry and raspberry aromatics. The Hudson vineyard also brings beautiful, bright raspberries, black pepper, smoke, finesse and a lively acid to the palate, whereas the Stagecoach vineyard adds dark fruit, great concentration, and structure.

Tete de Cru 2014 is from a classic vintage. The wine is structured, balanced, elegant with a fantastic natural acidity. The wine is made from plots from both Pouilly and Fuissé. The plots in Pouilly, with a high limestone proportion, contribute to provide intense perfume yet more delicacy in the mouth. Those in Fuisse, where clay is more prominent, are less aromatic but fuller, more solid and structured. Vines are an average of 30 years old, which gives an extra level of complexity to the wine.

With an intense rubi colour, this wine presents itself with a great concentration in the nose. Extremely rich aroma with predominance of red ripe frutis and some floral notes, well integrated with notes of spices coming from the ageing in French and American aok barrels. In the mouth it shows great complexity with notes of plums and blackberries. The finish is rich and elegant.
