High Dive Napa Valley is a limited-production red that pays homage to the Napa Valley blends of the 1970s.
High Dive is a “Left Bank” Bordeaux-styled blend. The first release of the 2014 vintage comprises predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon, with Merlot and Cabernet Franc playing supporting roles in the blend.
The wine is a reflection of two micro-climates. The Oakville AVA from where fruit is sourced provides ripe fruit and richness, while the Carneros AVA gives a fresh acidity, the company says.
High Dive’s winemaking team includes fourth-generation winemaker Peter Heitz, born and raised in the Napa Valley. Heitz has been the winemaker at Turnbull Wine Cellars since 2007.
The suggested retail price is $95 per 750-ml. bottle.
