About This Wine:
“Great wines are made in the vineyard and are meant to be paired and enjoyed with food,” he says. “I like to craft wines that are approachable now, but also have good aging potential. A balance of varietal characteristics and oak is what I try to achieve with my wines.”
In order to produce the type of grapes needed to fulfill Oliai’s vision, vineyard soil is tilled as little as possible, and the use of chemicals and fertilizers is restricted. Intense hand farming, gentle fermentation and old-world cellar practices combine to yield exceptional results.
Vintage 2014 represents the second “Quatreaux” release from Alta. It’s is a blend of four classic Bordeaux varietals grown in four exceptional Napa Valley mountainside vineyards, including Alta’s estate vineyard. Perfectly balanced and demonstrating great finesse, it’s a benchmark wine for showcasing Fred Oliai’s winemaking philosophy.
