Ashes & Diamonds Proprietary Red 'Grand Vin No 1' Oak Knoll District 2015

Founded by Kashy Khaledi, Ashes & Diamond is a project build on collaboration, highlighting the region’s most influential voices. This vintage, winemaker Dan Petroski produced all wines from organically farmed fruit and attentive winemaking. ‘Grand Vin No. 1’ is a Merlot dominant (75%) blend from Oak Knoll, showing flavors of sappy red fruit, cedar, and pencil shavings.


Deliciously zaftig Bordeaux grape that shed its second-banana-to-Cabernet Sauvignon status to become a star in its own right. Early-ripening softly textured yet often very serious (see: POMEROL).

Napa Valley, United States

Loamy-soiled, north-south valley reaching from the hot springs of Calistoga to the San Francisco Bay. It’s home to world-beating Cabernet Sauvignon, among other wines, and the American answer to Bordeaux.
