Dancing Hares has always been a red wine blend that features four of the Bordeaux varietals- Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. The fruit is grown on our estate vineyard in the St Helena AVA within Napa Valley.
The 2015 vintage is no exception. The rocky and well-drained soil of our vineyard yields small berries and highly concentrated fruit. The 2015 estate blend features dark fruit aromatics- black current, blackberry, and plum. These fruit characters are balanced by black pepper, violet, lavender and a hint of licorice.
On the palate, the wine has full body with a bold structure that settles into a lingering and balanced finish. This wine is fruit forward and powerful in its youth, though will develop into a more complex, textured and sensitive wine with cellar age.
