The RLC label was designed by celebrated Napa-based designer, Jimm Cross, and reflects an artist's modern interpretation of a 16th century woodblock print of a grapevine.
Tasting Notes: The 2017 RLC immediately jumps out of the glass with aromatics of ripe Bing cherry, black licorice, cinnamon stick and sandalwood. Flavors of cassis, anise, toasted almond, and savory dark chocolate with ripe tannins and creamy finish make this a sensational wine to drink now, though it can easily age in the cellar for a decade or more.
