Amulet is a study in blending – of both Bordeaux varietals and appellations within the Napa Valley. The 2014 vintage is nearly 50% Cabernet Sauvignon with the balance being nearly equal amounts of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petite Verdot. The majority of the fruit is from our estate vineyard in St Helena balanced by fruit grown on Howell Mountain and the eastern hills in Oakville. With aromas of plums and black cherry balanced by brown spice notes, it has a full body and long smooth finish.
