Auction 15 | Lot No. 56
John Anthony Vineyards
Oak Knoll District of Napa Valley
5 cases produced
This wine was made from fruit produced by a
small 2.5-acre vineyard on the western edge
of the Oak Knoll District of Napa Valley, nestled
at the base of the Mayacamas. While all of the
grapes that go into John Anthony wines come
from small plots that I planted and farm, this
is one of my most favorite locations, producing
wines of beautiful concentration and balance.
We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
18-20 months in barrel. Primarily new French Oak.
