2003 THIRTEEN - Imagine one bottle of wine capturing the entire Napa Valley in a bottle? That's precisely what THIRTEEN has accomplished. One ton of grapes from each of Napa Valley's thirteen sub-appellations blended together to create a Meritage.
2004 FOURTEEN - In 2004 the Oak Knoll District was added creating Napa's fourteenth appellation. From the makers of THIRTEEN, we are pleased to offer you the distinguished and original FOURTEEN.
2009 FIFTEEN - In 2009, a long-awaited piece of the Napa Valley AVA puzzle fell into place. After years of debate, conflict and bureaucracy, Calistoga finally received the distinction it had long ago earned. Naturally, we were there to select the very best of it for our own project. With this release, Fourteen Appellations becomes Fifteen. And you have yet another reason to become enamored with it.
2011 FIFTEEN - Mother Nature was not equally kind to everyone in Napa Valley in 2011. But because FIFTEEN is comprised of fruit from up, down and across the Valley, we were able to pick around problem spots and weight this year's blend to the AVAs that faired the best. One of the merits of making a Meritage.
2011 also marks the final vintage of FIFTEEN. We say "final" because, while this wine was in barrel, Napa Valley added a 16th AVA. When the wine becomes SIXTEEN we will be adding more than a new fruit source. New ownership, fresh capital and an estate home we can call our own will all play a role in our next release.
While our winery and tasting room are under construction, we currently offer tastings of the 2009 Fifteen Appellations in the tasting room at Reynolds Family Winery. Steve Reynolds has been our winemaker since our first vintage of Thirteen Appellations in 2002 and he is often on site to share stories and even barrel samples of the next few vintages of Fifteen Appellations before they are bottled.
We hope you will come by and meet the man who makes it all happen and hear more about the new property we hope to call home for the 2014 vintage.
