Worthy Reserve 2017 (Napa Valley)
The Vineyard/sourcing: 100% estate-grown fruit from Kalaris Family Vineyard in Napa Valley
Varietal Composition: Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 50%, Estate Cabernet Franc 31%, Estate Merlot 19%
Background: In our desire to create Pomerol-style wines, we re-planted a significant block to Cabernet Franc and Petite Verdot to complement our Old Vine Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Worthy “Kalaris Family Vineyard” Reserve is the first endeavor reflecting our new blending philosophy. This first release has been held in bottle for 3 years to tremendous benefit. Beginning with the 2021 releases, this transition takes further shape with Axios. An exciting new chapter, just in time to celebrate our 25TH year.
