Baldacci Family Vineyards
Stags Leap District
5 cases produced
First Born—the celebration of an extension to
the family. Baldacci Family Vineyards First
Born is a barrel selection from the best of the
best! Rolando Herrera and Thomas Baldacci
choose the best barrel from our estate,
designated Brenda’s Vineyard (which has
already been identified as “the best” that our
17-acre vineyard has to offer). The wine is full
of deep, ripe, berry flavors, and dark chocolate
and violet aromas all wrapped together in a
lush coating of new French oak. These five
cases are one-of-a kind and cannot be
duplicated at any other time. Fill the cellar
with First Born and toast the magnificent
characteristics of the Stags Leap District and
Napa Valley winemaking!
