About

"As to the red blend from Hatcher, the 2015 Sugarloaf Mountain Red Wine offers deep, concentrated notes of cassis, black cherries, graphite, and earth. This full-bodied, elegant, sensationally textured 2015 has no hard edges, fine tannin, a surprising elegance, and a terrific finish. It’s going to drink nicely for two decades."

"Composed of 50% Merlot and 50% Cabernet Franc, the 2015 Sugarloaf Mountain Proprietary Red has an evocative, earthy nose of tilled soil and mossy bark over a core of warm red and black currants with touches of pencil shavings, dried herbs and fungi. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is fine, elegant and fresh, with expressive earthy layers and a long, finely grained finish."

Product Description:

"Located at the southern end of the Napa Valley, Sugarloaf Mountain resides on an exposed spine of volcanic rock. This spine of Basaltic Igneous rock, reaching out from the southern end of the Vaca Mountains, was created some 7 million years ago by volcanic activity at the triple junction of the North American, Farallon and Pacific tectonic plates. Little topsoil and exposed aspects make Sugarloaf Mountain a challenging environment for growing wine. Regulated deficit irrigation helps to keep the vines on “life support” through the latter part of the growing season while a western hillside exposure promotes late afternoon sunlight, helping to achieve sufficient solar degree days to fully ripen Bordeaux Varietals." - Winery
