2016 Ficante Case (50% Off)
Ficante is a very special blend of grapes traditionally used in port: Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz, Tinta Barroca, Touriga Nacional, Tinto Cão and Tinta Amarela. Evocative of Argentinian Malbec, Ficante's nose of purple spring flowers, bouqet garni, and blueberry-blackberry compote transitions into a medium-bodied palate of black cherries, wild blueberries, and espresso. Long, satisfying finish.
York Creek Vineyard, named for the defining feature of the land that flows year round through the property, is located high atop the Mayacamas range of mountains on the western edge of Napa Valley north of St. Helena. Perched at 1250 – 1800 feet above sea level with well-drained soil, its unique position in the Spring Mountain District is well known for producing dark and intensely flavored wines.
