Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
First impressions of dark plum, blackberry and confectionary notes of cocoa with coffee grounds evolve from the glass. These aromatics, paired with notes of allspice and vanilla, provide a subtle preview into the mouthfeel of the wine. Flavors of crème de cassis, toasted vanilla and boysenberry are layered with chalky tannins that provide a lengthy finish. The 2016 growing season allowed us to harvest these grapes at optimal ripeness, which resulted in a beautiful wine that can be enjoyed early on with a proper decant.
Vineyard Notes
The Deux Chevaux Vineyard is a 60-acre vineyard situated in the Yountville Appellation, northeast of the town of Yountville. The vineyard is planted with Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Chardonnay. Deux Chevaux is French for “two horses,” which is the namesake of Tamber Bey.
