The Wine

The 2012 vintage is classically Napa. Great fruit expression within a firm structure. The O’Connell Family Vineyard Estate signature style of provocative aromas of rich cassis and exotic undertones of thyme, rosemary and cedar fill your senses. With each sip, the flavors of cedar, wild mint, nutmeg, tobacco and dark chocolate linger on and on. A memorable wine that speaks of its distinctive terroir. Elegantly textured.
