White & Rosé Wines

2020 ROSÉ
HERINGER ESTATE VINEYARD | Clarksburg

Our 2020 Rosé is dry, crisp, and complex. This is a serious wine with great balance and texture. We harvested Tempranillo and Mourvèdre from the Heringer Estate Vineyard in Clarksburg to create a very Mediterranean styled Rosé. Strawberries, watermelon rind, rhubarb, and white peach are exhibited on the nose with weight on the mid to back palate. The wine finishes with wonderful, crisp, juicy acidity. We have found our Rosés benefit from a little bottle age and continue to develop complexity over a few years.

Red Wines

Vintage 2018


2018 CUVÉE No. 4 Red Wine
NAPA VALLEY

Our Cuvée no. 4 Red Wine uses Merlot from the Broken Rock Vineyard at the base of Atlas Peak to give it structure, depth, and an explosion of fruit with refinement. For the 2018 release, we blended 93% Broken Rock Merlot with 3.5% Petit Verdot, 2.25% Broken Rock Cabernet Sauvignon, 0.75% Cabernet Franc and 0.5% Malbec. This is a rich wine exhibiting red cherry, cedar, graphite, cocoa, a touch of fennel, and some barrel spice. With soft tannins, lively acidity, and integrated oak, the wine is full and rich and has completeness across palate with a lasting finish. While it has immediate appeal, we expect it to develop and gain complexity over the next 7-to-12 years.

2018 CABERNET FRANC
STAGECOACH VINEYARD | NAPA VALLEY

The 2018 Stagecoach Cabernet Franc is big and structured with an elegant entry, fullness on the mid-palate, and a lasting finish. For 2018, the blend is almost 100% Cabernet Franc – 99.25% Stagecoach Cabernet Franc with 0.25% Merlot, and 0.5% Petit Verdot. Elegant with darker to blue fruits, pronounced dark cherry, a nice touch of floral notes, and slight herbaceous undertone. This is not your standard valley floor Cabernet Franc. This is a big wine all the depth and muscle you would expect from the Stagecoach Vineyard. As with most of our wines, this Cabernet Franc has immediate appeal but will continue to develop and gain complexity over the next 7-to-10 years.

2018 CABERNET SAUVIGNON
SIGNATURE RELEASE | NAPA VALLEY

2018 marks our first vintage using the Melrose Vineyard in the northern part of Rutherford bordering St. Helena. Melrose produces classic Napa Valley Cabernets, which share a lot of similarities to Cabernets from Oakville. Managed by Beckstoffer, Melrose is the up and coming vineyard in their portfolio. For this vintage, we created a blend that is almost 100% Cabernet blend – 98.25% Cabernet Sauvignon with 0.75% Merlot, 0.5% Petit Verdot, and 0.5% Cabernet Franc. This wine has character, elegance, texture, and balance. Grainy tannins pair with lively acidity and integrated oak to compliment the richness of the fruit. This wine will continue to develop and gain complexity over the next 10-to-15 years.

2018 CABERNET SAUVIGNON
HERITAGE RESERVE | RUTHERFORD

Sourced from the fabled G3 vineyard in Rutherford, this wine shares the same characteristics and pedigree as some of the legendary and iconic Napa Cabernets from Rutherford. Acquired by Georges de Latour in 1928, it was known as Beaulieu Vineyard 3 for decades. Under its current management, this vineyard produces wines that are everything you would expect from a world-class Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon – dust, black cherry, dark plum, cassis, current, cocoa, cedar, and barrel spice. For 2018, this wine is almost 100% Cabernet – 98.125% G3 Cabernet Sauvignon with 1% Merlot, 0.5% percent Cabernet Franc, and 0.375% Petit Verdot. Lush, opulent, and balanced, there is a touch of grainy tannins with crisp acidity and integrated oak adding to the weight and texture in the mid palate and a lingering finish on the back palate. Our Heritage Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon should continue to develop and gain complexity over the next 10-to-15 years.

2019 CUVÉE NO. 4 RED WINE
NAPA VALLEY

Our Cuvée no. 4 Red Wine uses Merlot from the Broken Rock Vineyard at the base of Atlas Peak to give it structure, depth, and a solid core of fruit. For the 2019 release, we blended Broken Rock Merlot with Petit Verdot, Cabernet Sauvignon from Broken Rock, Cabernet Franc and Malbec.

2019 CABERNET FRANC
STAGECOACH VINEYARD | NAPA VALLEY

The 2019 Stagecoach Cabernet Franc is big with an elegant entry, fullness on the mid-palate, and a lasting finish. For 2019, the blend is Cabernet Franc with Petit Verdot, Malbec, and an ever so slight amount of Cabernet Sauvignon from the Stagecoach Vineyard. Elegant with dark to blue fruits, pronounced dark cherry, a nice touch of floral notes, and slight herbaceous undertone and a nice backbone of tannin and acid. This wine has all the depth and muscle you would expect from the Stagecoach Vineyard and has immediate appeal but will continue to develop and gain complexity over the next 7-to-10 years.

2019 CABERNET SAUVIGNON
LIMITED RELEASE | HOWELL MOUNTAIN

2019 marks a return to Howell Mountain. Our first wine under the Prothro Family Wines label was a 2014 Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon. That wine won a Gold Medal at the San Francisco International Wine Competition and was rated 90 points. Sourced between 1,800 and 2,000 feet of elevation, the 2019 is just as stunning with impressive fruit, nice tight tannins, and a backbone of acidity. The depth and assuredness of this wine is amazing. While it is beautiful now, this mountain grown wine will benefit from some bottle age. We expect this wine to develop and gain complexity over the next 12-to-18 years.
