Overview of the Wine
The Vine Cliff Winery Estate of today is an exquisite mountainside property located on land which was once part of the original George C. Yount estate. It is one of the oldest wineries founded in the Napa Valley

It took close to 85 years before Vine Cliff, like the phoenix in its seal, rose from the ashes. In 1985, Nell Sweeney purchased the estate. The vineyards became alive again with new plantings of cabernet sauvignon. The Sweeney Family introduced ecological farming practices to Vine Cliff. The original Vine Cliff winery stone first floor was resurrected in 1990 and 1991 with the construction of a barrel chaise. In 1995 a new gravity fed production facility was completed. It is considered one of the top and most innovative production facilities in California. Additional vineyards were purchased by the family in Calistoga and Carneros achieving over 40 acres of estate vineyards by 1999. In June of 2000, the present day much acclaimed cave was completed, providing 15,000 square feet of barrel aging capability.

In 2014, the Sweeney Family opened the Vine Cliff St. Helena Tasting Room to accommodate a greater number of Vine Cliff wine lovers flocking to Napa Valley for an exclusive tasting experience. At the St. Helena Vine Cliff Tasting Room, a seasonal culinary menu compliments the Vine Cliff wine tasting program. Vine Cliff today continues the vision – to produce outstanding distinctive wines, and to create a landmark winery where the incredible beauty of its historic hillside setting is to be enjoyed, where the legacy of Vine Cliff continues to soar like the phoenix.

Winemaker Tasting Notes
The nose reveals bing cherry, violets, crushed lavender, and baking spice. The combination of plum, vanilla, and graphite on the palate give way to more savory notes of olive tapenade transitioning to a nice long finish. This wine can be enjoyed immediately but will also benefit from a little time in the cellar as well.
