The La Perla Vineyard is situated at 1700 feet elevation in the northwest portion of the Napa Valley on Spring Mountain. The fruit benefits from the cool nighttime temperatures and the Pacific air flowing 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 outstanding structure and balance coupled with excellent purity of fruit into the explosive finish. While certainly delicious today, it could also benefit from a few years of bottle age.
