Checkerboard Impetuous Red 2016 750 ML
Just released…Checkerboard Vineyards 2016 Impetuous, a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot with the balance of Petite Verdot and Cab Franc. A blend of all four Checkerboard vineyard sites: Aurora, Nash Creek, Coyote Ridge and Spring Meadows that rise from the valley floor to the top of Diamond Mountain. Made from the younger vines on the property.
Checkerboard Vineyards is on the southeastern slopes of Diamond Mountain. Checkerboard’s flagship cabernets are made in small quantities. The vast majority of the wine made is sold via their mailing list, but a few cases get out for retail and restaurants.
Winemaker: Martha McClellan worked making the wines at Harlan Estate from 1995 through 2000. In 2001 she took over the winemaking and vineyard direction at Sloan Estate, the renowned Napa Valley winery, where she continues to make the wines today. She also oversaw vinification for several years at Blankiet, while starting Levy & McClellan with her winemaker husband Bob Levy. In 2006 she came to Checkerboard Vineyards and made the first vintage from the Aurora Vineyard site on Diamond Mountain.
"Martha has an extraordinary resume, limitless talent, and a perfectionist, nearly obsessive, attitude toward making world-class wines.”
