Vineyard sources for the 2016 Headwaters are from the cool-climate Coombsville appellation and hillside vineyards southeast of downtown Napa. Proximity to the San Pablo Bay imparts spicy aromatic and flavor complexities, while the cooler climate promotes supple tannins and crisp acidity that define this flavorful, elegantly textured wine.

Rich, and fruit-forward, the blackberry and plum flavors announce themselves upon palate entry, while nuances of lightly roasted coffee beans and baking spices are revealed as the wine is drawn in. The long, balanced finish is a good indication of a delicious wine that will be enjoyable upon release and for an additional decade.
