August Briggs 2016 "Wishes" Napa Valley Red
Just 100 cases of this fantastic, hand crafted Napa Red were made, in a small open topped fermenter , punched down daily by hand, and bottled without fining or filtration. It was aged in one new French oak and three older American oak barrels.
The 37% old-vine Calistoga Charbono lends incredible color, power and concentration to the blend. The 37% old-vine mountain Syrah gives this wonderfully pure, rich flavors, as well as a certain nobility. Then there’s 14% Cabernet for intensity, attack and length, and 12% ancient vine Zinfandel for fruit and spice.
