In any given vintage, our Merlot is almost invariably the most graceful, refined, elegant wine that we produce. With a 2011 growing season that emphsized exactly those characteristics, you can imagine the result.
For those of us who have always thought a great Merlot was charactarized by subtle, refined beauty, the 2012 Grigsby Vineyard Merlot is perfect evidence to support our case. This wine is all about elegance, grace, and balance, with enough power in its structure to age beautifully.
Our 2012 Collinetta Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon is a perfect illustration of why there's so much excitement surrounding the Napa Valley's Coombsville sub-appellation these days. Even if you couldn't see the wine's gorgeous, almost impenetrable color, the aromas would tell you that this is the dark purple stuff.
There's a ton of substance here, carried on an intricately woven structure of the beautifully silky, sweet, luscious tannins that are the hallmark of Napa Valley's 2012 vintage. It's a compelling balance of power and grace, and we hope you'll treasure it for many years to come.
Our 2012 Grigsby Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon is everything you'd expect in a top-flight Cabernet from a classic, perfect Napa Valley vintage. Pure, ripe fruit flavors are the focus on the palate.
Our 2010 Grigsby Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon is a beautifully classic expression of ripe Napa Valley Cabernet. This is certainly a big wine, and built to last. The overall impression, though, is one of exquisite proportion and balance. For a wine with this much power and concentration, it remains remarkably light on its feet.

At Rocca Family Vineyards, we could not be more excited about our 2010 Tesorina. This wine is indeed our "little treasure," the very pinnacle of what we do, and it's a perfect illustration of what makes this vintage so special.
