The La Perla Vineyard is situated at 1700 feet elevation in the northwest portion of the Napa Valley on Spring Mountain. The fruit benifits from the cool night time temperatures and the Pacific air coming across the Mayacamas mountains. The wine has gorgeous aromas of blackberry, wild cherry, provencal herbs, dark soil, dark currants, smoke and exotic spices. It possesses amazing outstanding structure and balance coupled with excellent purity of fruit with an explosive, long finish. While certainly delicious today, but could also further benefit from a fews years of bottle age.
