2004 FOURTEEN Napa Valley Meritage
THE PARTS ARE GREAT . . .
BUT THE SUM IS EVEN BETTER
That’s the concept behind FOURTEEN, a wine made from the best grapes from the best vineyards in each of Napa’s 14 sub-appellations.
Oakville. Yountville. Rutherford. Diamond, Spring and Howell Mountains. Wherever excellence is valued, we went, collecting grapes from every microclimate and every soil type. Grapes from hillsides and from the valley floor. All for the purpose of creating a wine that best captures the essence of Napa Valley.
FOURTEEN stands in stark contrast to the current trend of having wines express increasingly smaller plots of land. Where other vintners try to convey a single vineyard, an exposure or even just a block, FOURTEEN asks the bigger question – What does a Napa Valley wine taste like? – and answers it with one of the most decadent and compelling blends ever produced.
Try this new wine, FOURTEEN, against its precursor THIRTEEN, which was made before the Oak Knoll District was added. It’s sure to be an eye-opening, lip-smacking, teeth-staining experience.
The wine that defines Napa Valley!
