2019 Impetuous by Checkerboard Vineyards | Napa Valley California 750ml

Impetuous is handmade at Checkerboard Vineyards from the same wine lots produced for our acclaimed portfolio. On harvest morning, vines are flagged for hand-harvesting and grapes are delivered just steps away to the crush pad. Clusters are sorted, discarding any imperfect ones and the remainder are gently de-stemmed. Individual berries are then selected for fermentation by a 10-person team and transferred to tank or barrel using a small pitcher. This labor-intensive winemaking method is intentionally low-tech and an essential part of producing our delicious, juicy impetuous wine.
The aromatics transport you to our mountainside in Napa Valley where four small vineyards dot the landscape between patches of forest, allowing grapes to slowly ripen in the sun. The 2019 vintage is a fresh fruit explosion. There's oodles of Bing cherry, wild blackberry, and cassis along with caramel, savory herbs, blueberry, and white rock. The wine broadens on the palate and stuns with a finish of fruit and baking spice-laden barrique. Yes, please. | Checkerboard Vineyards

To experience the pedigree of Checkerboard at this price point is more than you could wish for. Full aromatics of black Mission fig, black berry, and plum are tethered to licorice and hard spices. Luscious texture on the mid palate gives in to a cocoa and vanilla bean finish. Only 350 cases produced. | Falling Bright
