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.”
The 2019 Hirondelle Cabernet Sauvignon from the beautiful Stags Leap District showcases the classic iron- fist characteristics that the region is known for. Earthy aromas of wild berries and baked plums give way to dark floral notes and a hint of creamy dark chocolate. Flavors of poison berry, blackberry pie and savory spices dance around the palate and are followed by elegant, mouthwatering tannins that protrude throughout the long finish.
