The Warriors’ iconic “The City” logo made its debut on the team’s jerseys in 1966, as an effort localize the newly transplanted team.  Today the symbol carries a strong legacy and is a source of pride for the Bay Area.  During this time, Freemark Abbey winery, was under new ownership which honed its signature style of winemaking, strengthening the winery as a fixture in the Napa Valley.  We pay tribute to their respective histories with this limited release traditional Bordeaux-style wine: a collection of mountain fruit handpicked from Napa Valley’s venerable Spring Mountain.

Winemaker:  Ted Edwards

Tasting Notes:  Ruby red in color, this blend of varietals express rich dark fruit aromas  - dark cherry, boysenberry, Santa Rosa plum, Bay leaf and dried herbs.  There is a milk chocolate nuance with integrated spicy oak.   The depth of fruit coupled with the richness of flavor, provides a profile that delivers from initial sip, one that continues on the palate for a very long finish.  This is a special wine.

Composition:

67% Merlot

14.3% Cabernet Sauvignon

13% Cabernet Franc

5.7% Petit Verdot
