2015 - Poster Series Red Blend

Each year, after we make our final Cabernet blending decisions, there remains a small amount of quality red wine that the winemakers blend together to create a quaffable everyday table wine. The label artwork for each vintage of this wine takes inspiration from the Miller family’s collection of original poster art displayed at the winery. 

Vintage Notes The 2015 growing season in Napa Valley started out with unseasonably warm temperatures in the late winter and early spring. This resulted in an early bud break and bloom. Colder temperatures in May (during the peak of bloom) caused uneven fruit set which ultimately resulted in a much smaller crop in 2015, compared to both average yields and the three abundant years that preceded it. As a result, winemakers worked together with vineyard crews and employed new technologies, like optical sorting, to ensure they picked and crushed only the best quality grapes. The harvest was one of the earliest on record in Napa Valley, beginning on July 22 with the picking of grapes for sparkling wine, and concluding for most all vintners and growers in the valley by mid-October. While ongoing drought was of great concern to farmers around California, Napa Valley received 75% of normal rainfall for the year, bringing far fewer water concerns for Napa Valley’s vintners. Tasting Notes Velvety, smooth, and seamless, need we say more? Ripe red fruit on the nose with long lingering flavors of sweet vanilla, and cola with hints of spiciness on the finish. Pairs well with everything.
