- Retailed for $45


Brookdale Vineyards was founded in 2000, with its first release in the fall of 2012. This limited production wine is made with fruit that is hand-selected from small blocks in some of the best vineyards in Napa Valley. 100% French oak barrels are used to age the wine for approximately 22 months.


Winemaker Notes
The aromas are dominated initially by black cherry which give way to cherry and slight raspberry with time in the glass. Side notes of cedar, vanilla and rose petals. The entry is full and round supported by find and medium grain tannins. The balance is impeccable and the finish long and intense.
