Alpha Omega Era Red 750ML
The top wine of the Alpha Omega estate, ERA, is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon grapes from eight award-winning and historic single vineyards throughout Napa Valley (see single vineyards below). In the words of Jeb Dunnuck, “This wine offers awesome notes of crème de cassis, crushed violets, crushed rocks, hints of mountain scrub brush, and lead pencil shavings. Deep and full-bodied, it has sweet tannins, no hard edges, and a great, great finish.” Very, very limited. Grab it while you can! WINEMAKER NOTES Era 2016 marks the second time our flagship wine is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. The first was the 2011 vintage when early rains and a cooler climate resulted in lower yields and berries that were very intense. In 2016, spring bud break arrived early due to a dry winter and warm soils resulting in a low flower count, and lighter fruit set with smaller clusters at maturity. The thinner grape population was beneficial to the vines’ energy, which developed a concentrated flavor profile for these fewer berries. “The 2016 vintage may be the best Era yet!” -Jean Hoefliger
