Nat Komes’ grandfather, Jerry Komes, always said there were three keys to living life to the fullest. What the three keys were, however, he'd never say, no matter how much his eight grandchildren tried to coax it out of him. Was it "Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness," "Love, Kindness and a Sense of Humor?" Though he never passed on the secret, Nat pays tribute to him with this Rutherford-sourced wine, a blend of red Bordeaux varietals yielding saturated flavors of blackberry jam, ripe black plum and dark cherry attended by notes of graham cracker, vanilla and bittersweet chocolate.  Warm and roundly-textured, the wine is a beautiful expression of Rutherford fruit, balanced with oak notes of buttered toast and spice and a hint of sagebrush. The wine calls for a robust food pairing, and would be an ideal partner with prime rib roast (one of Jerry’s favorites), eggplant parmesan or fall-off-the-bone baby back ribs.

On the Vine

The 2015 vintage in Napa Valley will be remembered for high quality but low yields. The growing season began with warm temperatures in late winter and early spring resulting in an early bud break. In May, colder temperatures during bloom caused fruit set to be uneven, yielding a much smaller crop compared to earlier vintages. Winemakers and vineyard managers worked closely together as the season progressed to ensure grapes ripened uniformly. The harvest, which was in full swing by mid-August, was one of the earliest on record in Napa Valley, and most vintners completed picking by mid-October. Although the continuing drought was a concern around California, Napa Valley received 75% of its annual rainfall average in 2015 making it less worrisome for vintners.
