2016 Scattered Peaks
Harvested at the peak of ripeness and aged for 18 months in French oak barrel, 50% new, Scattered Peaks offers intense black and red fruit aromas bolstered by hints of baking spice and toasted oak. On the palate, dark brooding fruit flavors of black cherry and cassis intermingle with notes of anise and violet. Firm and silky tannins with a touch of vanilla support a long, enjoyable finish.
Scattered Peaks is an elevated spin on Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon carefully curated and elegantly crafted by wine industry icon, Derek Benham and legendary Napa Valley Winemaker, Joel Aiken. Leveraging their deep passion for—and long history within—the California wine industry, Derek and Joel source exceptional fruit from coveted regions throughout Napa Valley. Their plunder is then aged in carefully selected oak barrels and artfully blended to achieve the high levels of quality and experience.
