2020 Manus Lux Cuveé
97% Ancient Vine Petite Sirah | 3% Cabernet Sauvignon | 25 cases captured into bottle.
We are so thrilled to have harvested this gem of a vineyard about ten days before the smoke from wildfires settled into the north end of the Napa Valley. Our reward is this deeply colored, opulent, and hedonistic offering. Redolent of crushed blackberries, fragrant plums, mulberries, and freshly cracked peppercorns. It's a generous palate, lush yet still refined with a clean tannin framework and focused refreshing acidity. The entire acre of organic, dry-farmed vines only produces a single barrel. This wine is a living piece of history, and I'm honored to be able to share it with you.
