Each Newton Vineyard wine embodies the founders’ vision to rise above the conventions of the valley in pursuit of unmatched quality. Crafted with an uncompromising commitment to true terroir expression, the Newton style is noted for its unadulterated richness and purity of fruit. The single square mile of hillside pioneered by the Newtons in 1977 is an impressive site, with expansive vistas of Napa Valley and beyond. The terraced mountain estate has 120 acres planted at elevations ranging from 500 to 1,600 feet above sea level. Each of the 112 distinctive vineyard blocks is planted to a specific varietal – Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon or Petit Verdot. These parcels reflect distinct soil types, sun exposures and individual microclimates. The blocks are fermented separately to contribute complexity to the final blended wine. As with the red varietals, the diverse Chardonnay blocks are hand-picked and vinified separately, providing the winemaker with a rich palette from which to choose when blending Newton Vineyard wines. The blocks are set among the native vegetation to preserve the ecosystem of the hillside. Recognized as an American pioneer of unfiltered wines, Newton Vineyard is dedicated to working in harmony with nature to transform grapes of uncompromised quality into wines of distinctive character. Based on an old-world style, Newton’s winemaking techniques include natural fermentation and bottling without filtration. These purist traditions preserve the natural depth of flavor, bouquet and structure. Read less

Dedicated to working in harmony with nature to produce remarkable artisan wines, Newton Vineyard transforms fruit of uncompromised quality into wines of distinctive character. Vineyard: The grapes used to make our Red Label wines are sourced from select vineyards throughout Napa Valley, from Los Carneros to Chiles Valley. Every year, we select grapes with a specific characteristic that will allow us to achieve the desired flavor profile of the final blend and create continuity vintage to vintage. Vintage Conditions: 2013 was a perfect vintage with long warm days and a dry growing season. We were able to sit back and wait as the grapes ripened on the vine and developed complex flavors. The wines have developed the opulence and balanced acidity during the aging process that will allow them to age gracefully. Vinification: We begin our winemaking work in our vineyards, cultivating the vines using sustainable farming techniques and following nature’s lead as the growing season unfolds. As harvest begins, our winemaker walks the vineyard rows to track the ripening of the fruit to ensure it’s picked when it reaches optimal ripeness. In the cellar, quality and purity are never compromised at the hands of convenience. Tasting Notes: The warm vintage resulted in tropical fruit aromas, including pineapple and star fruit mingling with the perfume of apricots and apple-pears. On the palate fresh stone-fruit and lychee flavors are balanced by a touch of oak. Food Pairing: No wallflower, this wine has bold enough flavors to be paired with a wide range of dishes. Some of our favorites are Chinese chicken salad, barbecued shrimp, grilled artichokes and soft cheeses such as brie and Havarti. Alc: 14%
