Product Description

Alpha Omega is a family-owned, boutique winery in the legendary Rutherford Bench in the heart of the celebrated Napa Valley. Established in 2006, Alpha Omega was founded by vintners Robin and Michelle Baggett to present world-class wines handcrafted by world-renowned winemakers in a convivial setting reflective of the Napa Valley farming community. The beauty of the modern, farm-style winery is as captivating as its wines. Using grapes from almost every appellation throughout the Napa Valley, including fruit from its own prized vineyards and other historic vineyards, Alpha Omega winemakers meld the Old World’s traditions with the New World’s stateof-the-art techniques to create Bordeaux-style wines that uniquely express the essence of the terroir of the famous wine region. While the yields were low in the 2015 vintage, the quality was high. The beauty of this vintage is that a limited number of 100+-degree days bolstered the concentration and power of the fruit. The vintage lprovided a round, voluptuous profile, which was complemented by extracting plenty of tannin to support it. The results are very complex and full-bodied wines. 2015 vintage – 92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Cabernet Franc, 3% Merlot, 2% Petit Verdot.
