Fortunate Son THE DIPLOMAT ( case of 6 )
Fortunate Son THE DIPLOMAT ( case of 6 ). The 2019 vintage was in every way a staggeringly great to me. I knew then, as I watched the vintage progress and when I finally and methodically picked the fruit block by block, passing through again and again to get just the perfect clusters, the fruit, those intense flavors, the richness were something incredible, even more so now, looking back, knowing now that the following year would bring so much carnage. How lucky I was, and I didn’t even know it.
Sourced from small, family vineyards, (in some cases for 3-4 generations) that are farmed with great care and attention. These vineyards (some are 80+ years old) have been brought together, actually woven together, so the magical fruit could at last become Fortunate Son.
A Napa Valley red blend composed of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and a very small fraction of Petite Sirah.
