Dark ruby in color. Complex nose brimming with brambly blackberry, rhubarb pie, plum, orange peel and marjoram. Secondary notes of savory, ripe red berry, and cigar box. Ripe, medium to full-bodied flavors of cassis, red raspberry and plum. Finishes long with bright notes of red fruits, framed up nicely with lingering plum and a hint of tobacco. Jamey Whetstone, Consulting Winemaker. Jamey moved out to Napa Valley from his home in South Carolina to manage Mustards Grill in 1996. Simply captivated by the community, lifestyle, and culture of wine country, he found himself quickly growing roots. By 1998, he had begun his winemaking education at Turley Wine Cellars where he would remain in his apprenticeship until 2005. During that time, he spent a summer sabbatical working for the Seysses family at Domaine Dujac in Morey-Saint-Denis and laid the groundwork for Whetstone Wine Cellars, which he founded in 2002.
