The 2016 Audēre is bold, it comes out guns blazing with lots of extract, some serious tannin, and a full-bodied mouthfeel hailing from ultra premium, volcanic Napa areas such as the Pritchard Hill area, Howell Mountain, Atlas Peak, and our very own Rockwell Ridge estate vineyard (35 feet below Howell Mountain). It is an exuberant, rich wine with red cherries, oodles of black fruits, and coffee notes.
