Maxville 2016 Oranos Red Blend
Maxville Oronos Red Blend
The terroir of Chiles Valley is unique within the various sub AVA’s of Napa Valley. Our Chiles Valley estate vineyard is located east of the valley floor, nestled in the Vaca Mountains at an elevation of 900 to 1,200 feet. Due to this higher elevation, daytime and nighttime temperatures are cooler, producing red grapes with lush yet firm texture, refreshing acidity, integrated fine tannins and distinctive berry fruit characters.
2016 is the inaugural vintage of our proprietary red wine blend Oronos. Tasked with showcasing the best barrels from our cellar, Executive Winemaker George Bursick has crafted a stunning debut of this limited production wine. In 2016, our estate Merlot is the wine’s foundation, showing vibrant black cherry and cocoa flavors. Select barrels of Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec were added to create a beautiful, deeply textured Bordeaux style blend.
