Ludwigs Fine Wine
3150 Oak Knoll District Proprietary Red Napa Valley 2016 750 ML
and Malbec from our estate vineyard in the Eastern foothills of the Oak
Knoll District of Napa Valley. Coming on the heels of a prolonged
multi-year drought, the 2016 growing season was dened by near-ideal
conditions. March and early April rains allowed the vines to emerge from
dormancy and begin the growing season with ample moisture and
nutrient rich soil. This supported the growth of healthy vigorous canopies
and balanced vines. Mild summer conditions, with only one marked
heat spike, encouraged the fruit to ripen evenly with minimal interruption
giving rise to deep color, intense aromatics and ample natural
acidity. Combined with ideal harvesting dates, the wine showcases great
depth, energy, and key varietal notes. Early reviews are that the 2016
was exceptional and that the wines will be some of the most compelling
of the last decade.
Each year we hand select grapes from specic blocks in the
vineyard. Our 2016 blend is delicate and precise in detail, the bright
red-purple hue an indicator of the depth and fresh fruit character. With
distinct aromas of raspberry and cassis, the wine opens to reveal subtle
layers of complexity. Intense, concentrated ripe fruit notes are oered,
supported by a robust structure with integrated soft tannins. This
vintage will continue to reveal itself over the course of many years.
