Hirondelle Vineyard is the first vineyard in the Amici portfolio to come from the unique Stag’s Leap District in Napa Valley. Located in the eastern portion of Napa Valley, Stag’s Leap District was the first region to be approved in the United States based on soil type. Volcanic rock and river sediments make up a staggering blend of soils that give the region its famed intensity and flavor profile often described as “an iron fist in a velvet glove.”
Our second vintage from this beautiful Stag’s Leap District vineyard site, the 2018 Hirondelle Cabernet Sauvignon shows the region’s classic iron-rich aromas and balance on the palate. Hedonistic flavors of black cherry, bright blueberry, and dark chocolate lead into hints of bittersweet cherry and black currant. With polished tannins and hints of rosemary on the finish, the wine combines the herbal flavors of Bordeaux with California ripeness and is an incredible wine to pair with food.
